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.
Run out of Tulane University and The Mary Amelia Women's Center, the NOLA Mom Campaign believes that a Nola Mom is one who wears many hats, such as being a mother, a wife, and an employee. She does all she can to ensure that her baby is healthy and given the best care available, but sometimes barriers get in the way. The Campaign wants to help all of the Nola Moms out there overcome some of these barriers, one step at a time. Be sure to check out their website nolamom.org that provides materials and support for breastfeeding-friendly workplaces.
