Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority will promote health awareness in three areas: Alzheimer’s Disease, Stroke and Mental Illness. The Alzheimer’s Disease and Caregiver Support will generate awareness and support for Alzheimer’s programming and research. Alzheimer’s disease is one of the fastest growing health challenges among African Americans.
Stroke and Heart Disease Awareness will remain a focus area as Alpha Kappa Alpha launches a major stroke prevention awareness campaign with emphasis on hypertension management, diet and exercise.
Mental Health will be highlighted as members bring attention to mental illness among diverse populations with low utilization of mental health services.
