(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) -- Former first lady Hillary Clinton was in Memphis on Thursday to visit St. Jude's Children's Hospital for the dedication of the Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration.
Clinton previously attended the dedication of St. Jude's Patient Care Center in 1994 as the First Lady of the United States.
The Marlo Thomas Center, named for St. Jude National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas, sits on top of the world's first proton therapy center solely designed for and dedicated to the treatment of children. Clinton tweeted a photo of her visit, with several children.
The center is part of a new $200 million building on the campus erected to "usher in a new era of research, education, collaboration, care and treatment for children with cancer." Thomas herself called the building "the celebration of a generation."
