Sometimes inspiration for what to do with one’s life comes from unfortunate circumstances. For Anna Larson, the introduction to health care as a calling came when she was a little girl.
At 6 years old, she was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia, a condition that causes abnormally fast heart beats.
“I was at church for the Christmas service and I wasn’t feeling good,” said Larson, now 23 years old. “As a 6-year-old I didn’t know what was happening. My heart was going really fast, almost 180 beats per minute.”
