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 eliminating health disparities and other barriers impacting the lives of Black women and girls. 

The Foundation is an outgrowth of Black Women's Wellness Day, an annual health summit that aims to inform, inspire, and empower women and girls of African descent to build and sustain healthy, wellness-centered lives. 

Founded by Lisa Peyton-Caire in 2008, Black Women's Wellness Day was first observed in Bowie, Maryland on Friday, May 22, 2009 in honor of Ms. Peyton-Caire's mother Roberta W. Peyton who succumbed to heart disease at the age of 64 on May 22, 2006. Since that time, the event has brought together thousands of women of all ages into the movement to improve their heatlth and wellness.
