'The care that was given was beyond anything I had observed in some major New York hospitals that I worked at.' NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It hit Cindy Bird when she looked into a mirror in the ladies' room at the former North Adams Regional Hospital.    The local union representative for SEIU1199 had just walked down a hallway lined with law enforcement officers bent on preventing a sit-in to stop the hospital from locking the doors. Up until then, employees were still clinging to the hope that something, or someone, would stop the looming

By Adnan Sohail, MD,
02:36PM / Monday, March 26, 2018

Dr. Adnan Sohail is a gastroenterologist at SVMC.

Early colorectal cancer often has no symptoms, which is why screening is so important.  Approximately 4.6 percent of men (1 in 22) and 4.2 percent of women (1 in 24) will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in their lifetime.

Aside from age and race, many of the known risk factors for colorectal cancer are behaviors traditionally associated with high-income countries such as sedentary lifestyles, Western diet and smoking. Non modifiable factors that increase the risk are related to hereditary and medical history, including a personal or family history of

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, March 26, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The three Democratic candidates all believe that Republican Gov. Charlie Baker can be beat in the fall.    It is just a matter of which one of them will be on the ballot against him.   Will it be former Newton Mayor Setti Warren, former Secretary of Administration and Finance under Gov. Deval Patrick's administration Jay Gonzalez, or author and activist Bob Massie?   "There is a not a single issue where the majority of people feel he is doing a good job," Gonzalez said of Baker.   Polls have constantly shown Baker as being a very popular governor. But, the Democrats say when it comes to the issues, the Republican is just
