In the fall, AED hosts the annual Dean's Day event. This event consists of small group sessions with Dean of Admissions from each of the nine Florida medical schools, a tour of the FSU College of Medicine, various speakers, and a medical student question and answer panel. Dean's Day is a great way to network and learn about the medical school admissions process.
CAMEO MEDICAL MISSION TRIP
Every spring break, AED pairs up with the Caribbean American Medical Education Organization or CAMEO to make a trip out to Jamaica. Our team works in four free clinics that help over hundreds of patients a day. It is an amazing hands on experience where you will learn many valuable skills, gain lots of shadowing, and meet some really great people along the way.
Dance Marathon is a year-round fundraising event for Children's Miracle Network. We raise money for kids with cancer. At this special event, we participate in one of the 20 hr dance shifts! Though the special event is in March, AED starts building their team of dancers early so they can fundraise as much as possible. You can sign-up to be a part of AED's DM team from the link on our current events page!

The CAMEO 5K is AED's spring philanthropy. It is a fun way to get active, bond with AED members, and help raise funds for our teams mission trip!
RELAY FOR LIFE
JDRF ONE WALK
JDRF funds research that transforms the lives of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Their goal is to continue to drive scientific progress that delivers new treatments and therapies that make day-to-day life with T1D easier, safer and healthier. By participating in the JDRF One Walk, AED hopes to contribute to the JDRF mission in a meaningful way.
Camp Boggy Creek
Camp Boggy Creek is a camp located in Eutis, Florida (near Orlando). This camp is for children with serious illnesses (cancer, diabetes, sickle cell just to name a few). Every weekend, the camp invites children with specific illnesses to come and have fun for the weekend. The children are able to forget about their illnesses for that weekend and enjoy the fun-filled activities camp has to offer! At Alpha Epsilon Delta, we have the privilege to volunteer at this camp during the Fall or Spring Semester! It is such an amazing opportunity to bring joy to those kids who are not able to have a healthy childhood.
