Since his second year of medical school, Jaipreet has been organizing an Anti-Tobacco campaign each year in Galveston, Texas. Student leaders from UTMB go to schools (grades 2-8) around Galveston and educate children about the negative effects of tobacco in an attempt to deter them from taking up smoking and/or using tobacco products. Last year, Jaipreet expanded the program to Houston, Texas and more than 1,200 students participated in the program.

He has been involved in multiple research projects since his first year of medical school and has presented his original research at several national meetings.
