HHS Secretary Donna Shalala conducts an informal chat with employees in Masur Auditorium while visiting NIH on Oct. 12.

Visiting an agency she called "the crown jewel of my empire," HHS Secretary Donna Shalala spent most of Oct. 12 at NIH, meeting invited guests at a 15-minute Q&A session in Masur Auditorium, lunching with student trainees at the Cloister, hearing three scientific briefings on promising research, and getting an impressive eyeful of construction progress on the new Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center from a perch on the adjoining Clinical Center's 11th floor.
