OLBH program slated  Tuesday

RUSSELL

Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital will host a free “Look Good…Feel Better” meeting from 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday in the OLBH Women’s Center at Bellefonte Centre (1000 Ashland Drive).

“Look Good…Feel Better” helps women cope with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment by teaching them beauty tips that can help them enhance their looks and boost their self-images.

In addition to changes in a patient’s physical condition, chemotherapy and radiation can cause increased susceptibility to infection. “Look Good…Feel Better” features experts trained to help patients deal with the physical side effects of cancer treatment and to promote good hygiene.

The free, nonmedical program is offered by the OLBH Women’s Center in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation and the National Cosmetology Association. To register, visit olbh.com or call (606) 833-2125.
