MedWest Health System now hosts Look Good, Feel Better workshops on two campuses. Facilitated by trained cosmetologists, these classes teach women with cancer how to understand and care for changes in skin and hair that may occur during treatment.
The workshops are held from 10 a.m. to noon each month, alternating between Med- West Health & Fitness Center in Clyde and the MedWest-Harris annex classroom in Sylva. The next class is scheduled for Aug. 1 in Sylva.
Participants will receive a complementary makeup bag, full of top name brand cosmetics.

The workshops are free, but participants must register by calling (828)452-8100 for the Med- West-Haywood class or (828)631-8100 for the MedWest-Harris class and give their name and phone number, so organizers can confirm the best color type for their cosmetics.
