Bike to Work Day 2019
On May 17, 2019, NIH celebrated National Bike to Work Day. It was a beautiful morning for everyone to gather on the NIH campus and salute the many positive aspects of biking to work. Joining me in this photo are (from left to right) my daughter Margaret Collins; my wife Diane Baker; and Vernon Anderson, a program director with NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and president of the NIH Bicycle Commuter Club.

Dr. Francis Collins sings for children around a campfire at Camp Fantastic

I always have such a wonderful time each August visiting Camp Fantastic in Front Royal, VA. This year, I got to sing a few songs around the campfire with my wife Diane Baker and granddaughters Bailey and Norah. Camp Fantastic provides a unique, week-long camping experience for about 100 children with cancer. We were there on August 14, 2018. Credit: Chia Chi Chang

Cutting the Ribbon on the NIH Clinical Center's Hospice Suites

How nice it was to take part in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new hospice suites at the NIH Clinical Center on July 10, 2018. Taking part in the ceremony (from left to right) are: Ann Berger, chief of Pain and Palliative Care at the Clinical Center; Francis Collins; Jim Gilman, the Clinical Center’s chief executive officer; and Gwen Wallen, chief nurse at the Clinical Center. To the right of the Hospice Suites sign is my wife Diane Baker. This extraordinary new unit is comprised of two two-room suites that have been thoughtfully converted into a home-like environment where families can stay with the patients. Credit: NIH
