Healthy Kappas / Healthy Communities
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.
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
