Dorothy Buckhanan-Wilson
President Wilson is continuing to lead the charge for the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority members to “roll up their sleeves” and drive health impact in their communities. Stroke personally touched President Wilson’s family and drives her to continue the message of empowerment to AKA by ensuring members take an even greater responsibility to share the message of heart disease and stroke awareness and help make women more aware of their health and manage the risk factors. . – Dorothy Buckhanan-Wilson, President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Chicago, IL
