Class of 2021: Joey Driskell

By: Chardonnay Ismail

After nearly two decades in the military, Joey Driskell earned his physician's assistant degree from the School of Medicine in Columbia at 40 years old.

His experiences sparked an interest in going to medical school. He enrolled in the respiratory therapist program at Midlands Technical College, and in 2019 he entered the PA program at the School of Medicine.

Driskell's next chapter includes working with Prisma Health in the critical care ICUs at Baptist, Park Ridge and Richland hospitals.
