Phi Delta Chi is a pharmacy fraternity that focuses on scholastic achievement, leadership and service. The organization is committed to raising funds and awareness for worthy causes, both locally and nationally. One of the most notable causes the fraternity is involved with is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital located in Memphis, Tennessee. Belmont’s chapter, Gamma Xi, has raised funds for St. Jude through various projects. One such project was a letter writing campaign called the Prescription for Hope. Through this campaign student members were able to raise $1,520 within the past year, totaling $4, 204 within the past two years. The group presented the hospital with a check during a visit last week.
