After initiating the visit by the visit by inviting the Minister to come and hear about the work of the Healthy Hoose during a debate in parliament, Mark McDonald, Jamie Hepburn and Kevin Stewart visited NovaBiotics, Robert Gordon University and the Healthy Hoose.
Commenting on the visit Mark said, "I had the pleasure of joining the Minister for Sport, Health Improvement & Mental Health, Jamie Hepburn MSP.
"We then visited RGU at Garthdee, alongside my colleague, Kevin Stewart MSP, who represents Aberdeen Central. This was to meet the people behind the Streetsport project which delivers many hours of volunteer led sport and diversionary activity for young people in communities across Aberdeen. The project is delivered as a partnership between RGU and The Denis Law Legacy Trust, with support from a range of public sector bodies. They do great work and I look forward to meeting them in my constituency in the near future.
"The final stop was Middlefield Healthy Hoose, a project established in 1999 where advanced nurse practitioners deliver a range of healthcare support to the communities of Middlefield and Cummings Park.
"We heard from the staff of the facility about the work the Healthy Hoose does and also about their plans for the future as they will be housed at the redeveloped Henry Rae Community Centre alongside Middlefield Community Project.
"It was a packed day, but I am sure the Minister enjoyed learning a bit more about some of the excellent work that is going on across the city in a number of different areas."
