Sharsheret and Alpha Epsilon Phi Partnership
Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi) National Sorority and Sharsheret are committed to educating and empowering thousands of women in AEPhi chapters and alumnae across the country. We emphasize the importance of learning one’s family cancer history and DNA. Teaching individuals about the signs and symptoms of breast and ovarian cancer and enabling young adults to take charge of their own health and in turn save lives. Together we help ensure that no woman or family has to face cancer alone. Get started and raise awareness on campus.
