Dr. Patrick Maranon received his Doctorate of Pharmacy degree from the University of Houston College of Pharmacy.

SNPhA’s leadership, goals, and impact on the community stood out to him as he became a part of the UH SNPhA family. Patrick previously served as the Vice President of the UH SNPhA Chapter, P3 liaison and served as the 2013-2014 National Region IV facilitator. Patrick is also a proud brother of the Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity Delta Delta chapter.
In Patrick’s spare time, he enjoys playing the piano and the guitar. Patrick also enjoys watching and playing sports and is a fan of the Houston Rockets and the Houston Texans.
Patrick’s goals as the National Diabetes chair include increasing SNPhA’s reach and impact towards each chapter’s respective communities. Further, he aims to recognize and reward the chapters for their creative and meaningful events. Patrick also wishes to increase interprofessional collaboration between professions and plans to implement means to collaborate and share ideas at diabetes health fairs across the nation. Patrick is eager to continue his journey with this new family and is excited to see the impact that each person will make.
