Introductory Navajo for Health Care Providers

By Alan Wilson

Medical Navajo is an elementary course for doctors, nurses, and other health care providers who wish or need to communicate on a basic level about medical matters with Navajo speakers. It is not a complete course in medical parlance, but a beginning. It is most effectively used in conjunction with Breakthrough Navajo, an introductory Navajo course by Audio-Forum®. Each section contains dialogs, vocabulary, questions and instructions, grammar explanations, and notes. Topics range from childhood ailments to psychiatric problems.
This program was developed by Alan Wilson, formerly Professor of Navajo Language at the University of New Mexico, Gallup Branch, with the assistance of physicians and native Navajo speakers.
