The Mary Amelia Women’s Center

The Mary Amelia Women’s Center (MAC) was established in 2003 as The Mary Amelia Douglas-Whited Community Women’s Health Education Center, and was the community outreach core of the Tulane Xavier National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health (TUXCOE). As the active TUXCOE contract came to an end, MAC expanded its reach to address the important goals and meet the commitments initiated by TUXCOE.  MAC continues an innovative, multifaceted approach to the health of women and their families across the lifespan through community capacity building, health education and prevention, advocacy, leadership development, and research.
