SisterSpeak Online Magazine to Host 2nd Annual Black Women’s Wellness Day

18 Apr

BWWDay 2010

Bowie, Maryland- April 2, 2010 – SisterSpeak Online Magazine is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Black Women’s Wellness Day to be held on Saturday, May 22, 2010, 11:30am-5:00pm at Largo Community Church in Mitchellville, MD.

Following on the heels of last year’s outstanding debut, Black Women’s Wellness Day 2010 will feature dynamic speakers and presentations intended to enlighten, inspire, and motivate attendees to build healthier lifestyles and to stop the cycle of chronic disease that plagues the lives of so many Black women.

This year’s theme, Wellness Is Our Birthright, conveys the core belief of Founder Lisa Peyton-Caire who wants women to fully embrace wellness and well-being as a way of life. “We were born with the basic building blocks for wellness, self-healing, and longevity and its time that we reclaim these gifts by educating ourselves and making a commitment to choose life.”

Peyton-Caire conceived Black Women’s Wellness Day in 2008 following the untimely death of her mother Roberta W. Peyton on May 22, 2006 from congestive heart failure at the age of 64, sixteen years after experiencing a heart attack at age 48.

“My mother was vibrant, beautiful, full of life, and the center of our family. Her life was cut short by a preventable disease that quietly takes the lives of women every day, including those of my paternal aunts, Lois Peyton Alston, Barbara Peyton Jones, and Marguerite Peyton Green. I could name dozens more, and sadly, each of us knows a woman who is struggling with or has succumbed to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or other ailments. We owe it to them, to ourselves, and to future generations to do all we can to stop this cycle and replace it with a legacy of wellness and longevity”.

Last year’s event, hosted at the Bowie Public Library, featured dynamic speakers and panelists who addressed a range of topics to promote awareness and provide practical solutions for daily living including heart disease prevention, spiritual and mental health, natural cleansing and colon hydrotherapy, fitness, Yoga, Reiki and the healing arts, and more. This year’s roster of speakers will continue the conversation on critical health issues disproportionately impacting the lives of Black women, while infusing fun, laughter, fellowship, a fitness demonstration, and great giveaways, a popular feature of the event.
