About Physical& Mental Health
This initiative was created to promote self-care through physical and emotional wellness as well as awareness and advocacy of health issues affecting the African American community. One component of the DeltaCare initiative is Red S.H.O.E. which is an acronym for Self-care, Healthy Options, and Exercise. SCTAC has created two programs, Delta Dose and Deltas in Motion, to encourage and support the DeltaCare initiative in helping our chapter members live a healthier lifestyle. Delta Dose provides information on relative health topics via our monthly newsletter and presents sisterly health challenges, such as walking and journaling, to our chapter members. Deltas in Motion is a weekly exercise class designed to promote physical movement with chapter members.
"Deltas Go Pink" is an annual initiative in which our chapter performs community service in the form of education and advocacy. This initiative brings awareness to breast cancer and how it disproportionately affects African American women. This year we delivered goodie bags to two local breast cancer centers and collaborated with the Political Awareness and Involvement Committee to produce a video advocating for early detection.
