Clinical Service Updates:

We are currently working on an exciting clinical opportunity for AED members to volunteer at a clinic, Julia’s Center. This clinic offers medical services to the uninsured in the Collin County. Although we are still setting up this volunteer opportunity, we would like to gauge the amount of students interested so we can reflect this when requesting volunteer spots.
