Alpha Epsilon Delta Inducts Six New Members
The Department of Natural Sciences and the Tennessee Iota chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta, a national preprofessional honor society and service organization, inducted six new members into their club on October 8 in Schimmels Park.
Following the outdoor induction, Alpha Epsilon Delta held an informal dinner where students were able to get to know one another better and to hear more about some of the club's service opportunities.
"We are so excited to welcome our new inductees and continue providing an encouraging space for Lee students pursuing healthcare professions," said Jasmine Ngo, the Lee chapter's student president.
Alpha Epsilon Delta encourages and recognizes excellence in preprofessional health scholarship and service. The chapter began at Lee last November.
Membership is open to students majoring in a health preprofessional curriculum leading to careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, podiatry, optometry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other health professions requiring post-baccalaureate study leading to advanced degrees and is based on scholastic achievement. Each student member must complete community service hours every semester.
Alpha Epsilon Delta provides a forum for students to interact with members in other chapters across the United States, establish contacts in the healthcare profession, and be considered for AED scholarships. This spring, Lee's society hopes to attend the National AED Convention in Nashville.
