Phi Delta Chi
National Team Partner
Phi Delta Chi, a professional pharmacy fraternity, develops student leaders to advance the pharmacy profession. The mission of Phi Delta Chi goes hand-in-hand with the mission of St. Jude, improving the lives of children by striving to provide quality services to patients, thereby advancing public health and strengthening the health professional community.
In August 1995, Phi Delta Chi adopted St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as its national philanthropic partner at the 60th Grand Council Meeting in Memphis, Tenn. Phi Delta Chi Collegiate and Alumni Chapters from across the country have raised money and awareness for the hospital, most notably through the Prescription for Hope program.
In the summer of 2009, Phi Delta Chi completed its first naming opportunity by raising over $200,000 and named the Outpatient Pharmacy. Additionally in 2010, Phi Delta Chi pledged to raise $1 million towards the naming of an inpatient room with an adjoining parent room in the Patient Care Center by 2020. In 2016, Phi Delta Chi members achieved their goal of $1 million in six years rather than 10. Phi Delta Chi looks forward to announcing their new naming commitment this year.
Phi Delta Chi is proud to be returning for their second year as a National Team.
