Favorite GMT memory: One of my favorite GMT memories was the end of the year barge on the lake. It was fun to hang out with my fellow GMT members and grill hot dogs, float on the lake, and watch the sunset from a tiny island (pro-tip: make sure to hike the island with at least another person so you don't get left behind). Overall, it was an experience I will never forget during my undergraduate years at UT.
Why did you join GMT? I joined GMT because at my very first meeting I admired how the org was able to connect people from all areas of healthcare. From their mission trips to volunteering locally, GMT provided me with a place outside of the classroom where I could build relationships while also helping the community. The deep-rooted friendly and welcoming atmosphere instilled by the org is one of the many things I hope to foster during my time at GMT and beyond.
