The Physical and Mental Health committee of the Lake Charles Alumnae Chapter (LCAC) seeks to achieve the physical and mental health initiatives recognized by Grand Chapter within our local community and to raise awareness and educate our members about health issues. This Delta year has been filled with numerous activities, events and information focused on improving our individual physical and mental health and the health of those in the communities we serve. We participate in the Southwest Louisiana Sickle Cell Walk, Ethel Precht Breast Cancer Walk. We have a challenge within our chapter “Walking to New Orleans”, this will measure our activity and steps as we focus on our next national convention.
