Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention is Delta Phi Lambda’s national philanthropy. Our philanthropy is unique to the Greek community because of its preventative stance. We advocate living a healthy lifestyle and educating our youth to take preventive measures now so that they may reduce the chance of developing problems as they grow older. We strive to raise awareness on this subject, host events and conduct projects to raise money for the National Osteoporosis Foundation and the Better Bones, Better Bodies Osteoporosis Education Project. Women are at a substantially higher risk of suffering from low bone density. In addition, due to their smaller frames and diet, Asian women are at a higher risk of brittle bones and preventative measures should be taken now in our early adulthood.
