My name is Palak Patel, I grew up in Simsbury, CT and I graduated from the University of Rochester in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Health, Behavior, and Society with a minor in Biology. Afterwards, I came to Boston to attend the Masters of Science in Biomedical Sciences program at the Tufts University School of Medicine. In my free time I enjoy traveling to new places, exploring different cultures, listening to a wide variety of music, and trying out new restaurants.
I am so excited and humbled to have the opportunity to be a part of the D22 E-Board. My hope is to use this platform to serve as an advocate for my class and help voice their concerns. I would like to be someone that they can rely on and entrust, and will always try to be of assistance. Although we are just beginning our journey through dental school, it has been wonderful to see our class form bonds with each other and build a strong class presence. We truly are a team, and each member of the class is a valuable player in our success. I can not wait to see where the next four years takes us!
