Dr. Crystal Sekaquaptewa was recently honored by Southern Utah University, in Cedar City, Utah, with its Annual Young Alumnus Award.
According to the SUU Magazine SUU In View, Dr. Sekaquaptewa graduated from SUU in 2010 and went on to receive her DDS from Creighton University in 2014, shortly before accepting a position with UNHS. The magazine says Dr. Sekaquaptewa is SUU’s first Native American Graduate to matriculate to a health profession graduate school and notes that she is the first female of the Navajo Tribe to become a dentist. She has been practicing at the Monument Valley Dental Clinic since 2014.
Congratulations on receiving this honor from SUU.
