Annual AED/KAPLAN MCAT Quiz Bowl 2012

This year the annual MCAT Quizbowl took place on Wednesday, February 15, 2012. The Global Medical Brigades of Boston University and the Pre-medical Society of Boston University both took part in this year’s QuizBowl. The QuizBowl this year had record attendance, and AED was proud to work in conjunction with the members of GMB @ BU and the PMS of BU. We’d like to thank KAPLAN for hosting the QuizBowl in conjunction with AED.

AED Networking Event

Wednesday, December 7th @ 8:00 PM

Photonics Room 201

 We hope you have all had a restful Thanksgiving break, and are ready to finish off the semester. We wanted to e-mail you to let you know that we will be holding a networking event for all AED members next Wednesday, December 7th at the Photonics Building Room 201 (PHO 201) at 8 PM. As mentioned in our first meeting, this is a chance for all of us to share research and shadowing experiences, as well has tips on how to obtain these opportunities.
As this will also count as a general meeting, we encourage all members to attend. (Remember that you are required to attend 3 such meetings for the year!)
Many of us will be able to walk away with clear objectives on where and how to look for worthwhile internships for the spring and summer. This is especially important because many summer internships will soon beginning accepting applications!
The first half of the event will be a short panel consisting of 5 of our members, who will speak about their research and shadowing internships. They will discuss how they began their internships, some specific tips for applications, and what they learned from their experiences. If any of you had a great experience that you’d like to share with the rest of the AED members, please let us know! We are still looking for 1 – 2 more members to be on the panel. (The Panel will be informal, so extensive preparation is not required).
The second half of the event will allow everybody to break out and join two main discussions: One focusing on shadowing and medical school applications and the other focusing on research and internships. This will mainly be for all of you to get to know the other members and network within the organization.
The event will be catered, so come take a break from your studies for an informative night on how to expand your health and medical experience outside of academics! We hope to see everybody there!

Student Forum for Health and Social Justice 2011

Student Forum for Health and Social Justice 2011

On Sunday, September 25th, Alpha Epsilon Delta helped to organize the Student Forum for Health and Social Justice along with a group of summer interns from Partners in Health. This conference brought together student activists and speakers from many disciplines to discuss global advocacy efforts and the ways in which students can access and affect the mechanisms that influence change in global health.

Many prominent speakers from Partners in Health and its praxis network joined the forum and lent their views to the conference. The forum featured a health-experts panel, a student panel, and breakout sessions. From large scale policy change efforts to every day individual activism, panelists explored pertinent issues in the field of global health.
