The Foundation for Black Women's Wellness Announces 5th Annual Black Women's Wellness Day 


Madison, WI (May 22, 2013)- The Foundation for Black Women's Wellness, a Madison, WI based non-profit organization committed to eliminating health disparities and other barriers impacting the lives of African American women and girls, announces the 5th Annual Black Women's Wellness Day. 

The annual health summit and empowerment event will be hosted on Saturday, September 21, 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin at the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall, 9:00am-5:30pm.

This year's Wellness Day theme, 'Embrace Your Life!' marks a culmination of the last five years' work to empower women and girls to take a giant leap forward in radically improving their individual and collective health and in building thriving, joyful, satisfying lives. The event will feature facilitated workshops and its signature balance of prevention information, fitness and food demos, and active dialogue around critical health and wellness issues, with a few unexpected surprises. 

Hitaji Aziz, Owner of Peacemaker Enterprise, Houston, Texas will keynote this year's event which will also feature a special virtual welcome by National GirlTrek Organization co-founders Tanya Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison. This year's event is expected to draw over 250 women and girls from across the area.

The Foundation and its growing ranks of Wellness Ambassadors will host the event which began five years ago as a tribute to founder Lisa Peyton-Caire's mother, Roberta Peyton, who died of heart disease on May 22, 2006. Peyton-Caire moved back to Madison in 2011, launched the Foundation for Black Women's Wellness last July with the help of supporters, and hosted the 4th annual Black Women's Wellness Day to a sold-out crowd on September 22, 2012 at the Urban League of Greater Madison.

"Reaching this critical milestone of five years is a confirmation of the importance and need for our work and our presence in the community", says Peyton-Caire. We are thrilled with the growing enthusiasm among women, partners, and the broader community in embracing our efforts and with the work we have been able to accomplish over the past 2 years here in Madison. There is much more in store, and we're excited by the opportunity to make a real and sustained impact on the health of Black women and girls here in Dane County and beyond."

The Foundation for Black Women's Wellness

Established in June 2012, The Foundation for Black Women's Wellness is a Wisconsin based non-profit organization committed to empowering Black women and girls to build and sustain healthy, thriving, wellness-centered lives.  Our core mission is to eliminate health disparities and other barriers impacting the lives of women of African descent, and to establish a culture of wellness among women through education, outreach, and support circles. 

The Foundation has hosted Black Women's Wellness Day for the last 2 years in Madison, Wisconsin, an annual health summit launched in May 2008 by founder Lisa Peyton-Caire to bring attention, awareness, and action to improving the health outcomes of women of African descent. Since that time, Black Women's Wellness Day has brought hundreds of women of all ages into the movement to improve their health and wellness through a fun, entertaining, and information-packed experience where health advocates, medical professionals, wellness practitioners, and survivors come together to share life-saving, life-enhancing information, testimonies, and transformation stories.

Ms. Peyton-Caire and supporters organized the Foundation for Black Women's Wellness to further advance the work of Black Women's Wellness Day beyond a single annual event to include year round outreach and education to women and girls.
