Geoffrey S. Roth
For over 20 years I have been afforded the opportunity to serve my American Indian Alaska Native community in many capacities. I am currently appointed for a three year term (2020-22) as a Member of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. I also provide consultative services to Indian Health providers, and Interim Executive Management services to varied clients. I have passion for my Native community and ensuring the best outcomes for the next generation. I am also currently working on IT solutions for the Indian Health Service’s outdated Electronic Health Records system.
Prior to this work I was primarily focused on implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) within the Indian Health Service (IHS) as well as leading the implementation of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act reauthorization. In this position I also served as part of the Senior Staff at IHS, a 6 billion dollar agency. There, I worked as part of a team with the Director on day to day operations.
Previously, I have spent time in non-profit management on the Hill, working for the betterment of underserved populations. I have also worked both domestically and internationally on the prevention of HIV and the care of individuals living with HIV and AIDS.
I am a seasoned leader with experience in local, state, federal, and tribal affairs. I excel at cross-cultural partnerships, congressional outreach, operations monitoring & evaluation, performance measurement, and non-profit management.
