An American Indian Physician Discusses Cancer in Indian Country and the Spirit of Eagles Program


Dr. Judith Kaur, an American Indian physician and Medical Director of Native American Programs at the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center, speaks about visiting reservations to help American Indian and Alaskan Native communities discuss cancer and treatment.

Meanwhile, she highlights her work with the Mayo Clinic and the Spirit of Eagles, an American Indian/Alaska Native leadership initiative on cancer. “I think the emphasis on health and wellness, not disease and dying, is what is unique about our philosophy. It’s finding that balance, that spiritual core. That’s what the Spirit of Eagles symbolism means—there’s strength, spirituality, health, healing, and that’s what our communities need,” Dr. Kaur says.
