Gerard Geoffroy has been a patient at The Wright Center for Community Health since 1999 and aims to bring “the patient’s voice” to the table. He sits on all of the organization’s boards, serving as chair of the Patient Engagement Council, vice chair of The Wright Center Alliance, vice chair of The Wright Center for Community Health board and vice chair of the Community Health Hub.
Gerard’s passion for healthcare was ignited while caring for his late wife during her illness. After her passing, he has continued to advocate for patient education and quality healthcare delivery. For over 40 years, he has worked in the fields of mental health and education, and he recently retired as an adjunct professor at the University of Scranton. Through his frequent travels abroad, Gerard has also learned about other healthcare systems, particularly in Europe, and he brings this knowledge to the table at the board level.
In his free time, Gerard enjoys serving in his local church and community, traveling, reading and working out. He lives in Jermyn with his dog, Molly. His daughter, Rebecca, is a musicology professor at the University of North Texas. She lives in Coppell, Texas with her husband, Chris, a site selection executive, as well as Gerard’s ‘grand-dog” Hayley.
