EST. 1996 | Excellence in Northeast Wake County

The purpose of the Physical & Mental Health program is to educate and promote healthy lifestyle changes for the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of sorority members and residents in the communities that we serve.  The Physical and Mental Health program strives to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of living healthy by developing and implementing health-focused programs that benefit the communities we serve.

The women of Knightdale-Wake Forest Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., along with family members and friends, annually donate funds to assist in St. Jude’s fundraising goal. They also donate nonperishable food items to provide baskets filled with items for a holiday meal to families whose current circumstances place them in a position for requiring assistance during the season. We host our annual health fair in the spring to highlight some of the various health care resources in the chapter service area and our “The Balancing Act” is an interactive, monologue-style discussion session with a variety of topics: physical health, abuse, relationships, family or career-related situations that cause depression or other mental/medical health issues.
