Dr. Imani Ma’at is a Health Educator/Scientist and Motivational Speaker, Author, and Poet who worked for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for 22 years. She is now the CEO of her own business entitled Healthy Haiku Productions, LLC which specializes in health educational workshops, training and motivational speaking regarding healthy choices for teens and adults.
Due to her passion for working with youth and the arts, in 2002 she co-founded a non-profit teen theater/health education group entitled Youth Educational Services (Y.E.S.) 4 Health, Inc. Most recently she launched an award-winning poetry workshop series for youth entitled Healthy Haiku 4 Youth, which has been systematically evaluated, through a Fellowship from Morehouse School of Medicine, Tuskegee University and University of Alabama documenting the effectiveness of this unique strategy.
Dr. Ma’at has published two books based on the workshop entitled: Promoting Healthy Knowledge, Attitudes and Behaviors Among Youth Using Haiku and Creative Expression: A Training Manual for Mentors which provides information on health issues such as delaying sex, HIV, violence, self-esteem, diet and exercise (and much more) and provides examples of Haiku and other poetry written about the issues. The second book, published in 2010, is entitled, Healthy Haiku Poetry: Using Creative Expression to Transform Youth. Several new books will soon be published in the Healthy Haiku series – one children’s haiku rhyming book on nutrition; a book for older children and teens that focuses on the prevention of obesity through nutrition; and a positive affirmations book for African American teens.
Dr. Ma’at is an Adjunct Professor at Morehouse School of Medicine and has earned degrees from Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and Teacher’s College of Columbia University.
