Several years ago, Paulette Fox (Naatawawaohkaakii) (MSc '05), manager of the Environmental Protection Division for the Blood Tribe Land Management Department, was driving up Lethbridge’s west side hill with her young son. She asked him to imagine the land with no buildings or houses, only teepees and buffalo.
Internationally recognized for her outstanding achievements and contributions to Canadian and aboriginal health care, Dr. Madeleine Dion Stout (BN ’82), former Distinguished Alumnus of the year (1995), vividly remembers the day she began her remarkable journey in the field of health care.
