The Lambda Chi Chapter of Chi Eta Phi Sorority was organized on November 13, 1965 in Detroit Michigan, at the home of Sarah Campbell Vaughn, with the support of Mamie Garland, National Organizer. It was the 27 th chapter of the organization.

Twenty-two dedicated and committed registered nurses began to carry the torch in Detroit, elevating the plane of nursing and striving to improve health care within the African American community.
