                                President's Message

    Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) at Louisiana State University is a pre-professional health honors society dedicated to pre-medical students.  AED aims to guide and assist students who wish to be successful medical professionals by exposing them to guest speakers and local volunteer work.  In addition to informing students of the many keys to success needed during undergraduate and professional schooling, we offer volunteer opportunities in our Baton Rouge community to ensure our members are well-rounded and socially informed applicants.

     AED holds meetings every two weeks designed to expose students to career options within the healthcare field.  At each meeting, guest speakers share their experiences, advice, and guidance with our members.  These speakers include medical students, residents, and physicians of numerous specialties including cardiology, internal medicine, and pediatrics.  In addition, our members have the chance to meet the Deans of Admission from both LSU medical schools at our Dean's Convocation.  Each tells us about their respective school followed by a unique opportunity to personally meet each Dean. We also host a Mock Interview with one of these Deans in order to expose our members to the details of the interview process.  Just as important as it is to be exposed to the many aspects of the medical field, we provide our members with countless opportunities to volunteer in our community at local hospitals, nursing homes, cancer services centers, youth organizations, and many more!

    As the new academic year begins, I am excited to serve as president of our chapter of AED and work with such passionate and driven students within our organization. I have learned a lot over the past few years through AED and am ready to give back. We are always ready to welcome new members, so if you are pursuing any career in health care please feel free to attend one of our meetings and start getting involved with AED. If the officers and I can be of any assistance to you, please reach out to us. Our personal contact info can be found here, or you can email aed.labeta@gmail.com
