Navajo Nation

I have seen the economic deprivation, environmental inequity, and disease that are plaguing our Navajo reservation. Yet Navajo philosophy measures wealth through the strength of our families and a well-balanced alignment with nature to stay healthy. Johns Hopkins Institutes are an amazing opportunity to build my skills to serve in significant roles of developing, managing, and implementing important community programs aimed at improving public health among the Navajo Nation or other indigenous tribes.
