Physical and Mental Wellness
Concerns about America's physical and mental health have not escaped Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Delta's work in prevention and "wellness" translates to health education programs, health fairs and the provision of health care services. Delta also supports medical research that examines illnesses that victimize specific segments of the country's population. Our Chapter conducts health awareness workshops to the community, supports educational and charitable initiatives for children and their families, the elderly, and others; coordinates activism in local and national health-related issues and forums; current focus is on HIV/AIDS in the African American Community, Alzheimer's Disease, Cancer and Domestic violence. In addition we sponsor an Annual Valentines Day party for seniors at Pinewood East Nursing home. This program is provided in conjunction with the Dr. Betty Shabazz Academy and Delta GEMS Institute.
