Vanessa Haygood, MD, is a private practice obstetrician and gynecologist and former president of the Cone Health Medical staff. She and her husband, Vernon Stringer, MD, started Central Carolina OB/GYN in 2006. They have two adult children.
Dr. Haygood is a board member for Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro. She also supports her church’s “A Message and A Meal” program where on Sunday afternoons families who are at risk for needing access to health care are able to enjoy a healthy meal, participate in a discussion of health topics, and be connected to community health care resources. Her church, St. James Presbyterian, partners with Cone Health to offer this outreach ministry. Dr. Haygood volunteers, not as a speaker, but to help serve the meal!
