Pinsky's Poetry Impresses NIH'ers

By José Alvarado

Poet Robert Pinsky reads from his work in Masur Auditorium.

NIH'ers filled Masur Auditorium to capacity on June 25 to hear and savor the work of "the People's Poet" Robert Pinsky. While delivering the NIH Director's Cultural Lecture, the current U.S. poet laureate captivated the audience with readings of his profound, eerie and heartrending verses, which were accompanied by anecdotes and witty commentary.

Biggest-Ever Health Fair
Is Also Best Ever

Dr. Jaime Brahim of NIDR conducts an oral cancer screening exam.

"There is something for everyone at the NIH Health Fair," said NIH director Dr. Harold Varmus in his remarks at the kickoff program of the "NIH Health Fair: Good Health Begins Here." A record number of more than 1,500 employees and visitors participated in the recent event held in the Clinical Center.

Noting that this year's health fair was the largest ever with 34 booths, Varmus said that promotion of good health habits among employees directly affects the quality of worklife and the missions of NIH and HHS.
