Physical and Mental Health

Delta Sigma Theta is committed to the physical and mental health of African-Americans. The sorority is focused on 3 major initiatives that affect our communities:

  1. Lose to Win-to encourage behavioral changes to improve health of Deltas, their family members and the communities they serve through diet and exercise.
  2. Catching, Coping and Conquering-to raise awareness on the impact that chronic disease has on the black community, by encouraging screening, raise awareness about treatment and support research efforts.
  3. My Cry in the Dark-to dispel the negative stigma associated with mental health disorders while encouraging black youth and families to seek mental health services as needed.
