May Week 2021 Thursday

Physical & Mental Health

Studies show African American women disproportionately suffer from health conditions associated with low physical activity, including obesity, Type II diabetes, heart disease, and colon cancer. Let’s move!

Here is a KAC workout for all fitness levels. Bookmark it and start your Wellness Journey!

Before you start — you will need a chair and weights of your choice (you can use two water bottles as weights if you don’t have any).


May Week 2021 Monday

Mindfulness Monday

Crimson Conversations: relax, relate, release with mental health and mindfulness tips. Coping skills help you tolerate, minimize, and deal with stressful situations in life. Managing your stress well can help you feel better physically and psychologically and it can impact your ability to perform your best. (Very Well Mind)  


Here is a look at ways to cope with an important reminder from professional counselor, DeShelle Burrowes.

International Awareness: Hands to Give

May 1st – 5th – The Knoxville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. wants you to help us empower women!

To overcome barriers to education and healthy living for young women and mothers of single-parent homes, KAC invites the community to support the cause to raise funds for young girls of the Ashanti Region in Ghana and Garífuna women of Honduras.

Some of the ways your donation will be used? $25 = food for 2 weeks for a family of 6. $5 = 6 packs of menstrual pads (lack of menstrual pads for these young girls can result in them missing up to a week of school per month).
