WBTV reports it obtained records from 2011 to 2019 that reveal William Roper serves on the UNC Health Care System board as well as having served on the DaVita, Inc. board and the boards of three successor companies in pharmacy benefits administration.

Records show Roper made around $5 million from his board involvements. The omissions on Roper’s forms came as some of the companies conducted business with the state.
