Every year on October sixteenth, members of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Incorporated celebrate the founding of an organization that has service to mankind at its core. The organization was founded on this date by Aliene C. Ewell along with eleven other professional African American nurses at Freedman’s Hospital in Washington, DC. The organization is comprised of registered nurses and nursing students who have a desire to uplift the community through service as it related to health promotion and disease prevention. The local chapter Zeta Chi Chi was chartered on May 28, 2011. The members have participated in health fairs, health walks, and sponsored educational seminars on hearthealth, kidney disease as well as diabetic retinopathy. The members of Zeta Chi Chi Chapter celebrated Founders Day with a ceremony, and dinner held at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront Hotel. Chapter members present were Carolyn Cash, Paula Cuyler, Georgia Hicks, Julia McCauley, R. Patricia Milton, Pattie Mitchell-Williams, and Laura N. Wiggins. A visiting sorority member, Robin Adams was also in attendance.
