Everyone deserves the
opportunity to Be Well
We believe this deeply.
Who we are: Be Well Madison is a fiscally sponsored nonprofit organization in Madison, Wisconsin. We partner with community centers and nonprofit organizations to bring wellness services to their communities. Be Well has a network of providers committed to bringing opportunities for holistic care at low or no cost to the individual. Through the ongoing support of individuals, grants, and partnerships, we diligently work to fill the gaps in equitable access and build a sustainable model for continual, coordinated care.
Our mission is to empower and improve individual and community health by increasing equitable access to preventative wellness services for all and centered on groups that have been historically marginalized.
Our vision is to create holistic community wellness programming within any neighborhood or community center in whose residents are in need of consistent, relevant, and effective preventive wellness services.

We are guided by these
Being well involves awareness and attendance to our mental, relational, physical, spiritual, nutritional, purposeful, environmental, and financial wellbeing.
Relationships matter, focusing on local connection-building between providers and their fellow community members has a positive ripple effect on us all.
We listen to what is present and offer what is relevant. We don’t determine your wellness needs, you do. We work to build services that are beneficial to our local communities.
Wellness providers are often called on to give and then give more. Burn-out is real and it is an obstacle we need to address. Fair compensation for community- based wellness services is crucial to make real, sustainable change.
“As a primary care physician in Madison for over 20 years, I saw first-hand the limitations of traditional “Western” medicine, with its emphasis on treating disease instead of promoting health, and the impact of socioeconomic disparities on a person’s and community’s well-being. I chose to be a part of Be Well Madison in order to improve the health of my community, especially those that are traditionally marginalized. I hope to offer my experience/perspective as a physician to collaborate with like-minded practitioners.”
– Dr. Heidi Eimermann, Whole You Acupuncture
