Couric Lauded as Great Communicator

A black-and-white photo of a smiling Katie Couric pinching the cheek of then-NCI director Dr. Alan Rabson.

Katie Couric is an unusually beautiful woman-several degrees more attractive in person than she appears on television's hard, flat screen-and she brought out an unusually warm and enthusiastic response from a turn-away crowd that came to Masur Auditorium May 18 to see her accept the National Cancer Institute's second annual Extraordinary Communicators Award. 

The NIH Record
