University of New Mexico

Lisa M. Antonio
Lisa is a member of the Laguna Pueblo and is a junior in the BA/MD program at the University of New Mexico. As a future Native American physician, Lisa plans to improve New Mexico’s health care system by being a cultural bridge for her Native American patients, respecting both the traditional and modern ideologies of medicine while finding a balance between the two. She is majoring in Languages and is studying Spanish, Navajo, and Italian (hopefully she will be studying abroad in Italy this upcoming semester). Lisa loves running, being outdoors, biking, cooking, watching movies and being with her family.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
