UDaB programs consist of a weeklong experience to work with a community over winter or spring break.

VIDA at UD is a club that wants to create a network among Pre-Dental, Pre-Medical, Pre-Veterinary students or any student that is interested in a career in the medical field.

The meeting will last about 30 minutes, and we will be going over who our executive board members are, what types of meetings we will be having in the future, and a general survey to see what you guys would want out of VIDA at UD this year.
