Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) recognizes, 

Patrik Johansson

Johansson of Omaha, Nebraska, is a passionate proponent of Harvard’s Native American outreach and a tireless advocate for rural and minority health care access. Beginning as an HAA elected director in 2006, he has worn many hats in his service to Harvard, including nine years on the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Alumni Council and eight years on the board of the Harvard Club of Sweden. Of African American, Cherokee, and Swedish descent, he devoted countless hours to the most vulnerable as a student and faculty member, completing the Commonwealth Fund Fellowship in Minority Health Policy and serving as an instructor of social medicine at Harvard Medical School. He was integral in ensuring the representation of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, the Nipmuc Nation, and the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head Aquinnah in ceremonies commemorating the 350th anniversary of the Harvard Indian College. He also facilitated the introduction of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Health Advisory Committee and petitioned for the conferral of a posthumous degree upon Joel Iacoomes, Class of 1665, one of the first Native Americans to matriculate at Harvard. For his unwavering dedication to the well-being of underserved communities, Johansson was recognized with the Medical and Dental School Deans’ Community Service Award, the Dr. Fang-Ching Sun Memorial Award, and the Albert Schweitzer Award. Johansson is a consultant for Wabanaki Public Health, a Tribal-serving public health district in the state of Maine
