Frequently Asked Questions 

  1.  Is AED in-person this semester?

    • We will proceed to carry out this semester in-person unless circumstances change under the university's announcements.

  2. Do I need to be a STEM major in order to join?

    • No, all majors with a pre-health track are welcome to apply.

  3. Is AED only for pre-med students?

    • Once again, no! That's what sets us apart from most health-related organizations.
