Please join us on Tuesday, December 10 to hear Lisa Peyton-Caire, Founder, Black Women's Wellness Foundation.
Transforming Black Women’s Health in Wisconsin:
Why We Must, How We Can
Presently, Wisconsin leads the nation with the worst health and quality of life outcomes for Black women, children and families. This is a narrative we must change, and that will take collective commitment and investment to transform. Guests will learn about the work and mission of The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness, our efforts to advance Black women’s well-being, and how they can join the movement to move Wisconsin from worst to best for Black women’s health.
About Our Speaker
Lisa Peyton-Caire is the Founding CEO and President of The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness, a Wisconsin based 501c3 organization launched in 2012 committed to eliminating health disparities and other barriers impacting Black women and their families and communities. Her work as a passionate advocate for women’s health was spurred by Mother’s untimely death at age 64 from heart disease in 2006, after which Lisa established Black Women’s Wellness Day, an annual summit now in its 10th year that empowers women and girls to sustain healthy, wellness-centered lives. The Foundation is an outgrowth and progression of this work which has mobilized a movement in the Greater Madison community to intentionally address and improve Black women’s health. Based on her work and impact, Lisa was appointed to serve on newly elected Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ Health Policy Advisory Council through which she was able to influence proposed policies addressing maternal and child health and health disparities in our State.
