Deborah Lindquist, MD, FACP
I was born in Minnesota in 1950. I grew up in and went to college and medical school in Nebraska. I did residency training in Internal Medicine at the University of Minnesota Hospitals and Clinics in Minneapolis. My fellowship training in Hematology and Medical Oncology was at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. I worked then at the Boston VA Medical Center, and was assistant professor through Boston University. In 1989, I started my clinic in Sedona, Arizona, which continued until April, 2019, for over 30 years. Subsequently, I have been doing locum coverage on an as needed basis. One of my areas of clinical expertise has been breast cancer, and I was actively involved in clinical research. I was on the Breast Cancer Committee for U.S. Oncology and actively participated in multiple trials. I am a member of the American Society for Clinical Oncology, and the American Society of Hematology, am a fellow in the American College of Physicians, and a member in the American Society of Breast Diseases. I am on the board for Cancer Support Community of Arizona, and live in Flagstaff, AZ.
I first took the Avatar course in 1993, and the Masters Course in 1995. I started teaching Avatar in 1995. I especially love teaching Avatar at the International Courses, as I enjoy interacting with people from all over the world.
