Melissa Rodrigo, MPA


Melissa Rodrigo is the former Deputy Director of HIV Services for the Cleveland Ryan White Part A, Cuyahoga County’s Ending the HIV Epidemic and Northeast Ohio’s HIV prevention programs.

In her role as Deputy Director, Rodrigo managed $8 million in federal and state HIV funding. Rodrigo joined the Cleveland Ryan White Part A program as a grant analyst in 2010.

From running multi-million-dollar HIV programs, spanning six counties in Northeastern Ohio, to her stellar professional reputation, Melissa’s skill set will be both invaluable to CR’s current and future partners and crucial as the CR team expand its national footprint supporting Ryan White and Ending the HIV Epidemic jurisdictions.

Melissa will open CR’s Midwest office, which will be based in Cleveland, OH.
