Maya Angelou Opens Health Center For Women

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Among Maya Angelou’s many profound, and very wise, thoughts is:

“I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me,” she said. If I do that well enough, then I’ll be able to look after someone else. But I have to look after myself first,” she says.  ”I know that some people think that’s being selfish, I think that’s being self-full,” Angelou adds.

Inspired by the idea of helping yourself to then help others, Angelou has taken up the cause of women’s health. This philosophy is at the center of her latest effort, a partnership with Novant Health, a not-for-profit integrated system of 13 hospitals that is set to unveil the Maya Angelou Center for Women’s Health and Wellness in her hometown of Winston-Salem, N.C.

The newest facility is the second with which Angelou has been involved. In 2002 she helped open the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity at Wake Forest University, which is focused on closing the gap in health and healthcare disparities among minorities.
