The Lambda Kappa Sigma Lambda Chapter was first established on April 14,1921 at the USC School of Pharmacy. We are a professional Pharmacy Fraternity that is dedicated to helping our members develop the leadership and professional skills they need to excel in their pharmacy career. LKS not only offers a myriad of professional and networking opportunities for members, but also coordinates events to help members build lasting friendships within the fraternity.
Lambda Kappa Sigma Pharmacy Fraternity was founded by Ethel J. Heath in 1913 as an organization to help women advance in the field of pharmacy. Since then, membership has grown to include 28 chapters across the states as well as internationally. Since the mid-80s, Women's Health Issues has become a major area of focus in the fraternity, and many projects were created to promote community awareness for topics such as Premenstrual Syndrome, Osteoporosis, and Hormonal Contraception. At USC, the Lambda Chapter is equally dedicated to promoting Women's Health by offering osteoporosis screenings and menopause education at health fairs throughout the year.
The mission of Lambda Kappa Sigma is to promote the profession of pharmacy among women and advance women within the profession by developing its members as individuals and leaders through the support of fellow members while encouraging a high standard of professional ethics and scholarship.
