Among those who hosted his visit to the Clinical Center were Dr. Zach Hall (l), NINDS director, and NIH director Dr. Harold Varmus. Reeve was briefed in the 11th floor solarium by intramural scientists and several extramural grantees. Segments from the visit were aired Dec. 23-24 on NBC's Today Show.
