Delta County Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the addition of the "Look Good Feel Better" program through Grand Mesa Oncology. Part of the oncology center's effort to focus on the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional aspects of each patient, this program will be beneficial to patients suffering with hair loss and skin issues during chemotherapy.
The program is directed by Pamela Bean, LPN. Bean has been an LPN for the last four years and joined Grand Mesa Oncology in November 2016. Bean is also a licensed cosmetologist who worked at Rocky Mountain Hair for roughly 12 years. Although she loves being a cosmetologist, she wanted to be able to help people in a different way as well. That's when she returned to school to obtain her LPN license. Bean also has a degree in finance. With her diverse work experience, Bean brings a dynamic to the program that is tough to match. In addition, she attended specialized training to launch the "Look Good Feel Better" program at Grand Mesa Oncology.
Thanks to the efforts of state Rep. Millie Hamner, House District 61, Colorado State University plans to re-open the Rogers Mesa research site.
The facility was taken out of operation in 2011, due to budget cuts throughout the CSU system.
