Celebrating Native American Heritage Month

Dr. Susan La Flesche Picotte       Native Affiliation: Omaha Nation
Le Flesche Picotte (1865-1915) was the first Native American to earn a medical degree. She studied at the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and graduated first in her class in 1889. She soon returned to the Omaha Reservation, where she went on to treat thousands of people. She's credited with building the first private hospital on a Native American reservation.
