Background
On her first trip to Thailand in May of 2006, Conni was fortunate to also tour through Laos for several days with the i-to-i team of Tong and Pe Tang. On reaching the capital, Vientiane, the group was able to contact Acharn Mimala Pathoumxad-Sengchandavong. Professor Mimala is a senior nurse who runs the foreign relations department at the hospital. She was happy to give a tour of the hospital facilities, which by Western standards were far from modern. She gratefully accepted Conni's donation of a heart monitor for the hospital's cardiac unit. This success of this trip became a significant inspiration for Anatta's creation.
