Delta Epsilon Mu
The first and only professional pre-health fraternity
Delta Epsilon Mu was founded on the grounds of Binghamton University in New York during the spring semester of 1996. The organization was initiated with the goal of uniting students interested in entering various health professions. The founding fathers united their interests in building a professional co-educational, pre-health fraternity, which could serve Binghamton University students by exposing them to professionals from various health fields. They wanted to inform students about current health issues with the intent of helping students choose a field of interest following graduation and beyond. A large part of the fraternity’s interests were focused on serving the community by uniting people of different age groups, ethnicities, religions and ideologies, who were all joined by a common interest in the health fields.
The brothers and sisters of Delta Epsilon Mu are committed to serving the community by advocating health education and care, and through active participation in service activities, fundraising, and outreach programs. Members are given opportunities to directly participate in health-oriented workshops and discussions, thereby attaining access to pertinent academic and career information through association with professors, advisors, career professionals, alumni members and fellow actives.
For Delta Epsilon Mu, our fraternity works on devoting most of our philanthropy on helping out with the cause of the Alzheimer's Association. To find more information on this non-profit organization, visit their website at http://www.alz.org/.
Dragonfly Forest is a non-profit organization that offers a year round experience for young individuals with Autism and other medical needs with a purpose of helping children feel like a normal kid. The camp experience is a week worth of fun and memories full of activities, empowerment and friendships. If you would like to extend a helping hand for this organization, a stamp drive is set in place for our chapter and other chapters across the nation, will be collecting stamps in hopes of reaching the national goal for 4,000 stamps. Collecting these stamps will help save the organization $2000, providing more programs and other implementations the organization can utilize.

Thank you to our guest speaker Lexi Mullen, for informing us about medical school. Our active members were able to learn about the challenges and rewarding experiences she has gone through not only as a current medical school student, but also during her undergraduate degree. Lexi even taught us some tips and tricks to enhance or better our applications for medical school.
