Alpha Epsilon Delta at the University of Alabama believes strongly in community service because of the benefits it provides the community, as well as the individual. In order to create more of a community among our AED members, we have decided to select a few organizations to be involved in. Among these include Big Brother Big Sister of West Alabama, the Rise Program, Red Cross, and Tuscaloosa’s One Place. While any community service is encouraged, these are the organizations that we recommend and are most heavily involved in. In addition to these organizations, we will work closely with the University of Alabama’s community service department.
Twenty hours of community service is required in order to be initiated. One should log their hours on the University of Alabama’s community service log sheet, SLPro. This is an easy system to operate and is widely used to track community service hours throughout one’s college career.

The main objective of AED’s community service requirements is to promote involvement in the community. The primary purpose of a physician is serving others. There is no better way to serve others than volunteering one’s time and talents. With this being said, the hours should not be the main focus while serving your community.
