ONLINE--Putting it into Practice: Wellness Practitioners Summit


Join Madison Public Library, Be Well Madison, and Wisconsin Mujer for a Madison BIPOC wellness practitioner gathering on February 17, 2022 from 7-8:30pm via Zoom.

A panel of local practitioners and organizers will reflect on their work centering BIPOC wellness experiences. The event will include time to network with fellow practitioners, as well as the opportunity to see some practices in action through several short showcases throughout the event. Come prepared to engage in thoughtful conversation as both a listener and speaker - how can we work collaboratively to create impactful, accessible and sustainable wellness services/resources for all? This event is hosted by the Live Well @ Your Library team who held a series of wellness events throughout Summer 2021 and who will share the results of a Community Wellness Survey.

Panelists include: Takeyla Benton, Robbi Dominquez , Rock Hancock, Dr. Armando Hernández, and Jazmine Mendez.

The event will offer opportunities to:

  • Connect with fellow wellness practitioners
  • Discover opportunities for collaboration
  • Network with the goal of building collective capacity and support in the Madison Community

This event will be hosted virtually through Zoom. The link to this program will be sent to you by email when you sign up. 

Zoom is a free video platform, and you can watch on a browser, or through the free mobile app for ios or android. You can also call in with a phone to attend with audio only.


"Live Well @ Your Library" is inspired by the work of Venus Washington, Jasmine Timmons, Araceli Esparza and Nikki Cook and their "Nourish You" Library Takeover Project, and seeks to empower those who have not always felt included in traditional wellness spaces, particularly BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) communities.
