Patrick Roberts is a Native American of Hopi descent and functions as the Health Policy Fellow with the National Native American AIDS Prevention Center (NNAAPC) and Caring Ambassadors. Patrick has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and has worked in the biotechnology industry and the university setting for over 25 years. He has previous experience advocating health needs in order to facilitate care of underserved populations through Kaiser Permanente San Francisco, Genentech, Inc., the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), and Acerta Pharma. As a Native American, Patrick felt he had to use his spiritual connection to aid in the assistance of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C communities and started volunteering his service to local HIV/AIDS and LGBT organizations. In 2016, Patrick returned to Denver, Co. to apply his professional talents toward hepatitis C community outreach strategies to help improve the health and well-being of American Indian/Alaskan Natives.
