BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General’s Pennington Cancer
Center will host “Look Good Feel Better,” a free national
public service program for women who are undergoing cancer treatment,
on Monday, Oct. 14 from 1-3 p.m.
The program is led by volunteer beauty experts who teach makeup application
techniques and offer skin and nail care guidance. They also demonstrate
how to manage hair loss using wigs, turbans, scarves and accessories.
“Look Good Feel Better is as much about improving and maintaining
self-esteem and confidence as it is about appearance,” said Christy
Lofton, RN, patient navigator at Pennington Cancer Center. “Patients
appreciate the instruction from beauty professionals while in a relaxed,
nonmedical setting with others who are in the same situation.”
A collaboration of the Look Good Feel Better Foundation and the Professional
Beauty Association, the program has empowered more than 1 million women
in the United States to reclaim their sense of control, confidence and
self-esteem since 1989.
The program will be held on BRG’s Bluebonnet campus at 8585 Picardy
Ave. To register or for more information, click
