Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity

The Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity is addressing one of the most compelling demographic trends in modern American history—the increasing diversity of the U.S. population. By 2050, the country will be split almost evenly between non-Hispanic Whites and all other minority groups. 

The Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity envisions the achievement of health equity by moving scientific discovery to action. We have affiliates from every specialty actively participating in Health Disparities research, Community Outreach and Student Development.  

The Center was founded in 2002 as a result of the collaborative efforts of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center administration, Dr. Angelou and other key individuals. The original name of the Center was “The Maya Angelou Research Center on Minority Health” and the name was changed in 2008 to its current form.
