Happy Twentieth, NCCIH
I was honored to give opening remarks at a day-long scientific symposium marking the 20th anniversary of NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH). Lorimer Moseley, a researcher at the University of South Australia, presented the keynote lecture, “Why We Need a Pain Revolution: From Science to Practice,” as the 2019 Stephen E. Straus Distinguished Lecture in the Science of Complementary Therapies. The symposium was held on September 23, 2019. Congratulations on your 20th, NCCIH! Credit: NIH

Fauci in Goverment Hall of Fame
What an honor it was to present my colleague Tony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), for induction into the inaugural 20-member class of the Government Hall of Fame. Tony was chosen for his pioneering efforts with HIV/AIDS and for his incredibly distinguished career as a public servant. Tony (right) addressed ceremony attendees about the privilege of serving as NIAID director and his unique opportunity to advise five presidents on global HIV/AIDS and other emerging public health threats. The Government Hall of Fame, launched by Government Executive Media Group, celebrates the best of the best in American government. The Hall of Fame gala was held on September 19 at the Washington National Cathedral. Credit: Kristoffer Tripplaar

NIH Relay Race 2019
It was my job to blow the whistle starting the 36th Annual NIH Institute Challenge Relay on September 18,2019. The relay race involved registered teams of five runners from many NIH institutes, centers, and offices. Each runner completed the same half-mile loop on the NIH campus and then passed the baton to the next team member. All teams included male and female runners with at least two team members of the same sex. It’s always a fun event and an annual reminder of the importance of exercise and staying fit. The race is sponsored by the NIH Recreation and Welfare Association. Credit: NIH

Discussing Cancer Immunotherapy
I joined Nobel laureate Jim Allison to take part in a roundtable discussion of cancer immunotherapy with several Members of Congress. The informal discussion took place in the Rayburn Office Building, Washington, D.C., on September 11, 2019. The meeting was requested by Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and ACT for NIH, Washington, D.C. Afterwards, we posed for a group photo, showing (from left to right) Jed Manocherian, founder and chairman, ACT for NIH; Congressman Fred Upton of Michigan; Congresswoman DeLauro; Congresswoman Nita Lowey of New York; Jim Allison, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, and a pioneer in cancer immunotherapy.
