Carol M. Seanez
Carol is a Diné woman of the Red House Clan from St. Michaels, AZ. Currently attending the University of Arizona, she is a double major in public health and physiology. Carol plans to pursue a career in community health on the Navajo Reservation. Carol’s interest in the health field sprouted from providing care to her grandmother with diabetes, and her exposure to an NGO called the International Alliance for the Prevention of AIDS (IAPA), with whom Carol taught HIV education in Chennai, India, in 2011. As the current coordinator for IAPA’s summer volunteer program, she will be helping current volunteers transition and navigate Chennai, India.

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.
