My name is Jacob Slater and I am a rising 3rd Year Biomedical Sciences major. I hope to one day become a cardiothoracic surgeon and educate the general public and underserved communities on cardiovascular diseases. I am grateful for the privilege to be your president this year and hope to share the opportunities PAMSA has given me with our members. Outside of medicine, I love being outdoors, traveling, and attending sporting events. I have been a member of PAMSA for two years now and have served as an events officer and most recently vice-president and I am looking forward to this new journey of being your president. I am looking forward to this upcoming year and am excited to see what we accomplish.

Nika’s here. #3rdyear #biomed #psychology #internationalstudent I’ve been in PAMSA for the last 3 years and have seen it in different shapes and under a lot of external and internal pressures. In the upcoming year, the last one for me, I’m excited to work hard along with you to see our fam house at its best, and I am overwhelmed at the thought.
Lots of warm hugs❤️

Here’s the quote I’ve been using to cheer myself up; “If something goes wrong, don’t change the goals, change the ways to achieve them.” - I have no idea who said this, I’ve read it somewhere at some point in my life and decided to keep it in mind.
