Health Task Force

Let’s “Live Healthy, Be Healthy” together!
RVAC provides insightful information & innovative programs for chapter members and the community that will enable all to make healthy lifestyle choices. As an organization of predominately African American women, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated is uniquely positioned to impact the well-being of all at large.
RVAC continues to strive to educate, engage, and empower all to take control of your health. Studies have shown that African Americans suffer from a myriad of diseases at greater rates than any other population. Our Health Task Force (HTF) committee is dedicated to bringing awareness to this fact and teaching persons of color how to live in a manner that enhances overall well-being. It is also the responsibility of this committee to provide the leadership required in advancing the Sorority’s commitment in this area by not only providing the community with disease prevention and health education strategies as new concepts evolve but, work with the Social Action committee to educate political representatives to enact appropriate legislation designed to improve access, quality, and cost of health care. The HTF has proudly established several community partnerships with local health agencies to better meet this call to action as we impact communities and positively change lives.

    National Cancer Awarness Month
    POSTED BY: HTF Committee |

    Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms. We encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
