27 PREMED STUDENTS JOIN NEWLY FORMED CCNY CHAPTER OF ALPHA EPSILON DELTA HONOR SOCIETY

NEW YORK, October 26, 2005 -- Twenty-seven premed students at The City College of New York, whose Program in Pre-Medical Studies (PPS) offers career opportunities in medicine for underrepresented groups, have been inducted as charter members of CCNY’s new Alpha Epsilon Delta Chapter.

The students were inducted into the national premed honor society at an initiation ceremony on campus Friday, October 14.

The new Chapter, named New York Mu, has set as one of its goals to provide services to the Harlem community in health care settings, according to Mila Susnjar, a co-founder of the Chapter and inductee.

“It’s also our mission to encourage and recognize excellence in scholarship; promote communication between health science students, educators and professionals, and to exemplify City College to the community,” explained Ms. Susnjar, a native of Akron, Ohio.

Other CCNY inductees and their hometowns were: Lolita Wood-Hill (honorary member, Teaneck, NJ), Najnin Akter (Astoria), Towhid Ali (South Ozone Park), Aditi Anand (Queens Village), Emmanuella Anyanwu (Queens), Evelyn Cantillo (Manhattan), Jonathan Chang (Manhattan), Alice Chu (Manhattan), Sherman Sheung Man Chu (Maspeth),  Patria Gerardo (Manhattan), Lawrence Ha (Brooklyn), Babalola Olufemi Jinadu (Bakersfield, Ca).

 Abigail McPherson (Bronx), Victor Merado (East Elmhurst), Zoe Miller (Manhattan), Pavel Mukhin (Brooklyn), Doris Murrell (Brooklyn), Jasmina Nikolov (Brooklyn), Sophonie Noel (Brooklyn), Rachel Pierre (Wellington, Fl), Mario Pinto (Manhattan), Virgen Serrano (Bronx), David Shui (Elmhurst),  Andrew Sim (Bayside), Alex Soltren (Irvington),  Silmilly Toribio (Bronx) and Isabel Trudeau (Quebec, Canada).

With the exception of Ms. Wood-Hill, a former advisor, all of the inductees are enrolled in the City College Division of Science’s Program in Pre-Medical Studies (PPS).  In recent years, over 70% of applicants from PPS have been accepted to one or more medical schools, versus the national average of 42%.

Formed at the University of Alabama in 1926 and incorporated in the District of Columbia as a non-profit, educational organization, Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED) is the largest honor society exclusively serving pre-professional health students. It has over 150,000 members and 192 chapters.

AED is dedicated to the encouragement and recognition of excellence in pre-professional health scholarship, including medicine, dentistry, veterinary, and others. It offers opportunities for intellectual and professional development, provides a forum for students with common interests and extends a program of service to benefit member institutions. In addition, it publishes a quarterly magazine, The Scalpel.
