Health-Related Hebrew Vocabulary

While the Yad L'Olim Healthcare Division in memory of Shira Pransky z"l is committed to making the Israeli healthcare system more accessible for English-speakers, it is always important and recommended for anyone living in Israel to master the Hebrew language to the best of their ability.
