In Memoriam....


Specializes in pediatrics. Has 10 years experience.

I know many of us are away on Summer vacation, however I wanted to share an article that speaks about a memorial that was held for Laurie Melchionda, a school nurse from Eastern Massachusetts, who was a victim of gun violence at the hand of a former neighbor.

She was by all accounts, an amazing school health advocate and a leader in our field.
