Judith Kaur, M.D., is living the life her grandmother knew she would. As the Florida Times-Union reports, it was her grandmother who, when Dr. Kaur was just 5 years old, looked at her and told her she was "meant to be a healer."
At age 5, Dr. Kaur "didn't really know what that meant," but as the years went on, the paper reports, "the words from her grandmother, a member of the Choctaw Nation, stuck with her." While attending community college "a professor told her she should go to medical school," the paper reports. Instead she earned a degree in education and went on to teach science to junior high and high school students.
Her grandmother's words were still with her when, as a 30-year-old wife and mother, she applied to medical school "at the urging of her husband," according to the Times-Union. She was accepted into the Indians in Medicine program at the University of North Dakota and completed her medical degree at the University of Colorado.
