Welcome to Furman's Chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta!
NEXT MEETING: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th, 6-7 PM
Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) is a national society recognizing excellence in the pre-health professional curriculum and service. AED is both a student organization and an honor society. Any students with an interest in health-related careers (Medical, Medical research, Dental, Vet, PA, PT, OT, Nursing) are welcome to join as associate members. Each month, we hear from professionals in the health sector as they speak about the experiences they have gained in their particular field. Meetings are held on the last Monday of every month.
New members are welcome to join at any time during the school year! Just come to one of our monthly meetings or contact an AED Officer for more information.
Please check this Orgsync page and our Facebook page occasionally to get info on upcoming meetings, social events, community service, and many other pre-health opportunities. Be sure to check out upcoming events posted on our bulletin board located by the pre-health offices in Plyler Hall basement. For all other news and postings you'd like to share with the AED community, please do so under the "Discussions" subheading of the same tab. We hope to pursue health-related topics and endeavors while spreading our interests to others students and the community and look forward to another great academic year!
