Lobo Reading Experience-Fall 2011
The Office for Equity and Inclusion is proud to present the 2011 Lobo Reading Experience. This year’s selection is The Scalpel and the Silver Bear by Dr. Lori Arviso Alvord.
Lori Arviso Alvord walks in two worlds. Raised on the Navajo reservation in Crownpoint, New Mexico, she is the daughter of a Navajo man and a white woman. Carrying this dichotomy into her education and career, she went from the reservation high school to Dartmouth College, then found her path to Stanford University School of Medicine and a surgical residency in New Mexico. As the first Navajo woman surgeon, she learned to integrate the science-based world of medicine and the spirit-based Native American culture.
The 2011 Lobo Reading Experience selection is available now at the UNM Bookstore for the special price of $12.80 with Lobo ID.
