It’s a Wednesday morning and the waiting room is already starting to fill up at the North Miami Beach Senior High School clinic.
“Go ahead and have a seat.”
A 16-year-old girl with an enormous red bow pinned above her ear approaches the appointment window. A beveled glass pane slides open. The woman behind the desk doesn’t ask for insurance information; she asks to see a hall pass.
The teenager with the red bow takes her place in a waiting room chair next to classmates who, between hushed exchanges of gossip, occasionally erupt in giggles.
