A Matter of Trust: Angela Dunn, Annie Dodge Wauneka, and Martha Hughes Cannon

Whether the issue is a pandemic, vaccinations, or any number of other public health issues, a major challenge for advocates is communicating crucial information in a way that builds trust and changes behavior. This episode tells the stories of three women who rose to that challenge: Dr. Angela Dunn, the current state epidemiologist at the Utah Department of Health who is on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic; Annie Dodge Wauneka, a tribal elder and public health advocate who worked in the Navajo Nation in the mid-twentienth century; and Dr. Martha Hughes Cannon, the first female state senator in the U.S. and driving force behind one of the country’s first state-sponsored boards of health.
