KSFR RADIO 101.1 FM SANTA FE NM

Producer and Host: Abigail Adler

Guest: Erica Elliott

In her new book, MEDICINE AND MIRACLES IN THE HIGH DESERT: My Life Among The Navajo People, Erica Elliott tells us about the deep dive she took into the Navajo culture. She reveals her profound experiences on the Navajo Resevation ---with the people, animals and spirits of the legendary, remote, Canyon de Chelley.

Before all that, Erica Elliott had an international childhood. She began her schooling in England, graduated from high school in Germany and studied art history in Italy. She earned a bachelors degree from Antioch College. She then spent a year in Switzerland, a year teaching at a boarding school on the Navajo Reservation,  and a year in Peace Corps in Ecuador.  Elliott lead an all-woman's expedition to the top of Denali in Alaska.

After all that, she finished a medical degree at the University of Colorado Medical School and began practicing medicine in Cuba NM. She opened her own private practice in Santa Fe, NM where she is known as “The Health Detective.” She specializes in treating mysterious and difficult-to-diagnose illnesses.
