Vitamin Lab featured an interactive installation that TI Lithuania created with the community of Lazdynai Outpatient Clinic.  Installed in the clinic’s waiting area, every patient was invited to evaluate his/her visit and indicate how smoothly the procedures went, how clear the doctor was when prescribing medication, what the overall impression of the visit was, would they be willing to say thank you to their doctor.
