The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness and local partners will host the 5th Annual National Wear Red Day Observance & Photo Shoot on Saturday, Feb. 20, noon-3 p.m., at Fountain of Life Family Worship Center on Madison’s south side.
The guest panel will include Dr. Jasmine Zapata, Cassandra Smoot-Sonko, Brenda Brown and Angela Black who will talk about heart health, managing stress, and making life-changing moves to improve health for Black women.
Event attendees are encouraged to proudly wear their red best in honor of the fight against heart disease in women and will get informed, inspired, and empowered to protect heart health, and hear the incredible stories of survivors who are living healthy, whole, and purpose-filled lives.
The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness was started by founder Lisa Peyton-Caire after a painful personal experience — the loss of her mother, Roberta Peyton, to heart disease at just 64 years old. Peyton-Caire’s mother died at a time when she should have been able to retire and to enjoy the life she build from a lifetime of hard work.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive by noon to be included in a special group and individual photos to be used in future campaigns to educate and inform local women about heart disease prevention. This is an intergenerational event, so all ages are encouraged to come. Light refreshments will be served.
