Pat Christen

President and CEO, HopeLab

Pat Christen is HopeLab President and Chief Executive Officer. She is responsible for oversight of HopeLab operations and the development of an organizational culture that delivers on HopeLab’s mission. At HopeLab, Christen instigated the creation of systems and relationships necessary to conduct the organization’s international 34-site randomized controlled intervention trial for HopeLab’s Re-Mission video game for cancer. Results of this groundbreaking research were published in medical journal Pediatrics. Christen has since led HopeLab into a new phase of innovative research and product development activities to enhance the Re-Mission video game and to create Zamzee, for which she seves as Chair of the board of directors, an online rewards platform for teens powered by their physical activity. Christen previously held the position of President and Executive Director of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation for 15 years, where she worked with her counterparts nationally to craft the federal precedent-setting Ryan White C.A.R.E. Act. Christen also served as president of the Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation. As president of Pangaea, she was responsible for the construction of the Infectious Diseases Institute at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Christen is a graduate of Stanford University, where she studied biology and political science. Tweet HopeLab @HopeLab
