Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity
A DESIGNATED CENTER OF EXCELLENCE WITH THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR MINORITY HEALTH AND HEALTH DISPARITIES
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 Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity is dedicated to the goal of achieving health equity by:
Conducting translational research to impact population health,
Developing sustainable and mutually-beneficial community partnerships, and
Delivering educational initiatives to diversify the clinical, biomedical, and public health workforce.
