The students from Marymount Academy paid a visit to the staff of the Vicki and Stan Zack and Family Teenage Health Unit, in the Goldman Herzl Family Practice Centre. It was a festive occasion, with the students bearing handmade thank-you cards and a cake to show their gratitude to the healthcare team, which for many years has been venturing out of the hospital clinic to high schools throughout the city, including Marymount, to educate students about mental health and medical problems common among teens. One teacher remarked that she and her colleagues are fortunate to have the THU answer health questions they receive from students that they themselves are unable to answer.
