|Originally from Cuba, Roberto came to Seattle in 1993 and after a hiatus in San Francisco he's now back to stay. His love for people, his extensive experience in customer service, and his community activism activities help to bring a unique and exciting perspective to STEP and all of its programs. Roberto will be coordinating all of our outreach activities, volunteers and the STEP TalkLine.
||I started working with STEP in June 1999 as the volunteer coordinator, and now edit and coordinate the STEP Perspective and Ezine. I am leaving in August to attend medical school at the University of Washington, but look forward to staying involved with STEP as a member of the Publications Advisory Committee.
||I was born and raised in the Seattle metropolitan area. I have an affinity for STEP and it's mission to provide treatment information and education to all communities involved in this epidemic "in my own back yard." I am taking time off from my medical school education and look forward to furthering my public health education. My role at STEP is to inform, equip, and galvanize community members affected or impacted by HIV/AIDS to begin addressing the epidemic in a coordinated and comprehensive campaign for overall health.
