On October 9, Delta Upsilon Chapter, Trenton, NJ, in cooperation with the Epsilon Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and the Institute for Wonderful Women Working for Empowerment sponsored a community health fair in an effort to raise awareness of health-care needs and careers in the health-care field. Over 200 people attended and participated in a variety of health screenings and health awareness workshops.  

In an interview with Trentonian, the local newspaper, Ron Williams, health initiatives chairperson for Delta Upsilon Chapter, said, “health and employment are major focuses for Delta Upsilon, which is why we helped organized and participate in event.”  

 “For more than 60 years, Delta Upsilon Chapter has supported and participated in many events that bring health education and health awareness to the greater Trenton community,” Williams said. “Teaming with two fine organizations like the AKAs and IWWWE helps us to get our message out to an even broader audience.”
