NIMHD Staff Serve Dinner at Children’s Inn

NIMHD Staff at the Children’s Inn

Shown at the dinner are (from l) Dr. Nishadi Rajapakse, Dr. Roselyn Hicks, Stephanie Nisson, Stephanie Mariette, Dr. Anna Nápoles, Dr. Eliseo Pérez-Stable, Dr. Maryline Laude-Sharp, Dr. Dottie Castille, Dr. Rick Berzon, Becky Newton and Kesi Williams.

On May 14, Dr. Eliseo Pérez-Stable, director of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, along with several of his staff, prepared and served an Italian dinner for families at the Children’s Inn at NIH, which provides “a place like home” for approximately 1,500 families and children from around the world each year during treatment in research studies at NIH.

Despite torrential rain and thunder, neither the storm nor the brief shelter-in-place could dampen the high spirits and glee of more than 40 attendees, who enjoyed an array of meatballs, salads, lasagna, pizzas, breads and desserts.

This was not the first time NIMHD staff served at the inn and it will not be the last. Another dinner is planned for later this year.
