The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness will officially open Dane County’s first Black Women’s Health and Wellness Center on Saturday, Feb. 1.
The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness works to empower black women and girls to build and sustain healthy, thriving, wellness-centered lives while improving Black women’s health and reducing racial health disparities.
“We cannot wait for the people of our community to come out and see our center on Feb. 1. We can’t wait to show people what we’ve been able to create through our commitment and the community’s support,” Lisa Peyton Caire, founder and president of The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness, told Madison365 in an article earlier this month. “We want to invite people into the space to show them that the vision that they have invested in has come to life and that they have helped us create this beautiful thing.”
The Grand Opening will take place on Saturday, Feb. 1, noon-3 p.m. at 6601 Grand Teton Plaza, Suite A2, on Madison’s west side. Special remarks and ribbon cutting with sponsors, partners and guests are scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness was established in June of 2012 to honor the life and legacy of Peyton-Caire’s mother Roberta W. Peyton, who died at the age of 64 from congestive heart failure. Each year, the foundation reaches, engages, and supports over 2,000 women and girls in Dane County to build healthier lives, and impact and inspire thousands more through our advocacy work and social channels.
