Alpha Kappa Alpha continues to raise community awareness of critical health issues impacting African-American women. The primary focus areas include breast cancer awareness and prevention, heart health, nutrition and wellness, and care for the caregivers.

Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention will focus specifically on early detection through mammograms to improve the survival rate of women diagnosed with breast cancer. Omicron Chi Omega will highlight this effort during Community Impact Day on October 1! Keep an eye out here for more information on our activities support this effort. 

Heart Health remains a focus as the sorority enhances its commitment to healthy hearts through fitness activities and walking. 

Nutrition and Wellness will emphasize healthy lifestyles including prenatal, childhood, adult, and senior nutrition programs. The focus will be on structured nutrition initiatives.

Care for the Caregivers places emphasis on taking care of those who take care of others.
