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 Med-West-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 self-image and appearance.


Getting books from the doctor will soon be a routine part of regular pediatric checkups at six medical practices in Region A. The Region A Partnership for Children is Partnering with Smart Start and Reach Out and Read® to make books and literacy guidance a reality for more children and families in Region A. The six new Reach Out and Read clinical locations join more that 4,779 programs nationwide that are preparing America’s youngest children to succeed in school.


in Order to Respond to Patient Emergencies

Like the Emergency Room of a hospital, the American Red Cross must be prepared to respond to patient emergencies with blood products 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Through the everyday support and generosity of blood and platelet donors, the Red Cross can be prepared to do this day-in and day-out, no matter when or where these blood products are needed.


FHS graduate working to ‘kick’ Franklin into shape for the New Year

Everyone who added “start going to the gym” to their long list of New Year’s resolutions knows how hard it is to stay committed to working out throughout the year. Instead of forgetting about this year’s resolution before January is even over, try considering an alternative option to working out.

Kickboxing might be the perfect solution to finding a fun workout that is exciting enough to keep you motivated to remain committed to your resolutions.
