There is Strength in Sisterhood

The Maurer Foundation has been in full swing, presenting our educational programs throughout breast cancer awareness month. Over the past few weeks, we have had the honor of working with three amazing sororities – Zeta Tau Alpha, Sigma Delta Tau, & Delta Phi Epsilon. These sororities were focused on raising awareness of breast cancer by offering workshops to current sisters and alumnae.

We jump started October with a new connection with the Zeta Tau Alpha chapter from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, reaching over 60 members.  Through Debbie Goldman, our Development Manager and proud alumna, we forged a new national partnership with the women of Delta Phi Epsilon. As part of their “Self” Pearl program, we presented a seminar which empowered current and past members to take control of their breast health by focusing on risk reduction, early detection and encouraging women to find a medical provider that listens to them and their medical concerns.

Our relationship with Sigma Delta Tau deepened throughout this past year. After a well-received presentation to the Farmingdale chapter last fall, we connected with their national headquarters and taught a workshop for their chapter advisors in May. Our partnership expanded as we recently presented our highly-engaging program to chapters and alumnae across the US. 

With current research indicating that practicing healthy lifestyles when we are young can have a powerful impact on our breast health, sorority programs allow us to reach an ideal audience. We look forward to expanding our connection with sororities, both on local campuses and on a national level.  Interested in our workshops for your sisters? Request a program now.
