Joaquin's mission is bringing awareness to the non-Native population on how they approach American Indian health. On the fast track to become a dentist, he says it is important to increase the number of Native health professionals and Native health researchers.
Joaquin, a junior public health major at the University of Colorado, has taken his cultural, academic, and professional experiences to create opportunities to help his people by doing what he describes as walking in other worlds.
"There is the Native world, the Anglo-American world, and then the medical world - and you have to be able to understand and navigate all three if you are going to make a difference," he says. "I have to be coherent and competent enough to be well-versed in all three to make a difference, but continue to work and be a productive member of my family, tribe, and community."
