Self Care Initiative


Red S.H.O.E. Campaign

Deltas and women everywhere are encouraged to adopt the Red S.H.O.E. habits:

  • Self-care
  • Healthy living Options
  • Exercise

Black women disproportionately suffer from some of the most deadly health epidemics because we focus much of our resources on taking care of everyone and everything around us. Tempe Alumnae implements several internal activities to promote healthy lifestyle choices and physical activity among our chapter members.

Mental Health Across the Lifespan

Because mental health diagnosis and treatment is often stigmatized, Delta Sigma Theta is starting the conversation with women of all ages. The sorority is exploring mechanisms to push past the "shame and stigma" to start meaningful dialogues about emotional wellness during every stage of life. Be sure to check our calendar often for information on the projects our chapter implements to support mental health around the Valley.

Coronavirus Pandemic


What should I do if I feel sick?

If you are feeling ill or think you may have COVID-19, please consult your doctor immediately. Many physicians now practice telemedicine and can do a preliminary review of your symptoms right over the phone. Several resources found here, such as the CDC and NIH, describe symptoms and provide information on seeking medical attention.

Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

CDC is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Nation’s leading science-based, data-driven, service organization that protects the public’s health. The CDC has developed guides on how to protect yourself from coronavirus, slowing the spread, the symptoms of COVID-19, and what to do if you are sick.

National Institutions of Health (NIH)

The National Institutes of Health, a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s medical research agency. Dr. Anthony Faucy, who has been the lead expert on coronavirus works for NIH, which is made up of 27 different components called Institutes and Centers. Each has its own specific research agenda, often focusing on particular diseases or body systems. All but three of these components receive their funding directly from Congress, and administrate their own budgets.

Arizona Pandemic Response

On March 30, 2020, Governor Doug Ducey issued a stay at home order and Superintendent of Public Instruction, Kathy Hoffman closed school facilities for the reminder of the year. This stay at home order encourages citizens to stay in their homes unless they need to leave for essential activities, such as grocery shopping, doctor visits, etc. 

The link below has information on our state government response, as well as local resources for individuals and businesses. We will also share information on local resources as they become available on our social media sites so please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
