Kew Gardens’ Dr. Payal Aggarwal, left, and Ridgewood native Karen Pekle, an oncology nurse practitioner, were both honored with awards in late June for their respective successes in the field of medicine.

One is a graduating medical student and the other is a decorated nurse with years of experience, but both Queens health professionals are also award winners.

One of Pekle’s newest colleagues in the medical field is Kew Gardens resident Dr. Payal Aggarwal, who graduated from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in Manhattan late last month with the school’s highest honor, Student Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine of the Year.

Aggarwal earned the award for supplementing her studies with numerous volunteer efforts for a number of medical and social groups, including the American Cancer Society and Habitat for Humanity.
