My name is Payal Patel and I am currently a fifth year majoring in Microbiology with a minor in Anthropology. This is my first year with the PreMed Magazine at UGA and I am joining as a writer. I am working towards going to PA school with hopes of becoming a Physician's Assistant in the future. I joined the PreMed magazine with hopes of combining my passion for writing and my future goals into one. I'm very much looking forward to this experience and hope that our readers will anticipate a great magazine this year!
