In recognition of American Heart Month, the Division of Intramural Research at the National Institute of Nursing Research recently organized a walk for NINR staff. 

The event encouraged staff to nourish both their hearts and their minds, starting with poster presentations from Graduate Partnerships Program (GPP) pre-doctoral fellows Delia Sass and Stephanie Chidester.

Following the presentations, the group took a brisk walk across campus to Bldg. 1 where they enjoyed heart-healthy snacks. Colleagues encouraged each other to be heart-healthy and raised awareness for the health observance by wearing red.
