Healthy Kappas / Healthy Communities
The Healthy Kappa's/ Healthy Communities' initiative is spearheaded by the fraternity's National Health and Wellness Committee, led by Dr. Edward R. Scott, II, D.M.D.
To provide health and wellness information with measurement tools and metrics for our membership, their families and their surrounding communities; to educate them on ways to monitor their personal health status as well as to keep personal health as a priority.
In addition to providing venues for health care information and screening, and forums for discussion on current health-related issues, the Healthy Kappa's / Healthy Communities initiative will provide ongoing communication on health and wellness issues through the use of web based digital media and other means. Members will also be encouraged to keep a Kappa Health Score Card that logs and records key health information for members and their families.
To underscore the significance of health and wellness is the fraternity's day to day efforts; Kappa Alpha Psi's Grand Polemarch and Senior Grand Vice Polemarch will continually lead by example and serve as chief spokespeople for the effort. To extend the reach, the Healthy Kappa's / Healthy Communities initiative is partnering with each of the fraternities' Province (regional) leadership teams and their surrounding community resources to spotlight the importance of health in the bond of fraternity, families and for the community at-large.
