Great Resource

I’m very thankful for host Savanna and Pre-PA Platform. This is such a great resource where I find information and a lot of details about application process, different PA programs, financial recommendations, PA profession, and so on. If I get into PA program, Savanna contributes a lot to it 🙂. Thank you for doing what you’ve been doing. You are an impact and just what Pre-PA students need, Savanna.

Cheers,
