Features Health & Wellness MedWest’s ‘Look Good…Feel Better’ workshops support women with cancer

MedWest Health System is sponsoring a series of “Look Good … Feel Better” workshops in 2012 for women undergoing treatment for cancer.

The free workshops are American Cancer Society programs facilitated by trained cosmetologists and offered in partnership with the National Cosmetology Association, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and MedWest- Harris hospital in Sylva.

Participants will learn how to care for changes in their skin and hair that may occur during medical treatment, and improve their overall selfimage and appearance.

Attendance per workshop is limited to 10 women. To register, call (828) 631-8100 and leave name and telephone number. Each participant will receive a complimentary makeup bag with brand-name cosmetics.

MedWest Health System’s cancer services team includes boardcertified general surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, pathologists, healthcare professionals specializing in radiation therapy and nurse navigators who help patients step-by-step throughout the cancer treatment process.
