Krishna Patel

Krishna graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied Biology and Healthcare Management in the Vagelos Life Sciences and Management Program. His undergraduate thesis focused on biological survival drives such as hunger, pain, and thirst, and he also enjoyed spending time volunteering within the School District of Philadelphia and working with local business owners at the Wharton Small Business Development Center. As an aspiring physician, Krishna hopes to further his research interests in medicine and health policy by studying how treatment for patients with chronic illnesses differs in the US and UK on cost, quality, and access dimensions.
