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.
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.
