2020 Pink Goes Red Event
On February 7, 2020, Delta Omega's Target 2 committee (Women's Healthcare & Wellness), sponsored a "Pink Goes Red" Healthy Heart Day event at the Masonic Lodge in Petersburg, VA. The event was very informative and lots of fun. We were excited about bringing awareness to the devastating effects of heart disease in communities around this country. Participants had the opportunity to receive Wellness Coaching & Blood Pressure Screenings. They also had an opportunity to get their blood pumping with line dancing. #AKA1908 #Excellence #DOheart #AKAPINKGOESRED
