Winchester resident Patricia Loric has a broad, cheerful smile that accompanies almost everything she does.
So when she was diagnosed with cancer in 2007 — a disease that claimed her husband’s life 10 years before — she decided to keep on smiling.

The school was picked from hundreds of nursing programs throughout the country by the Sawiris Foundation for Social Development in Egypt to partner over the next five years to establish the Gouna Nursing Institute, a two-year nursing program in Egypt that will replicate the Medford-based school’s curriculum.

What's the most common fear of patients about to be wheeled into the operating room? Is it fear of having a limb amputated by mistake, or having a sponge sewn inside them? One might think so, given the media's focus on medical errors today. Actually, the most common worry is a much less publicized one: fear of getting sick to one's stomach and vomiting.
Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) "is one of the primary fears of patients undergoing procedures using inhaled anesthesia," said Kathleen DeLeskey, DNP, RN, assistant professor of nursing at the Lawrence Memorial Hospital/Regis College Nursing Program, Medford, Mass.

Many long-time Wakefieldians remember it as Gallahue's Grocery in the Greenwood section of town where the family-run market offered a bit of everything you could possibly want or need for your pantry shelf. Today, the aisles have been replaced with open space. Chairs and tables and a faux fireplace replace the meat counter and the end caps. Some of the people who once shopped at the local favorite, now spend the day at the Dutton Center an adult day health - supportive program.
