A Call for Real Stories During Covid-19 Pandemic

Since January 2020, Covid-19 has had an impact on the NIH community in many ways—from researching and providing information about the disease, to developing therapeutics and vaccines, to caring for patients in the Clinical Center, to re-configuring the ways we perform our jobs. 

To preserve this important period in NIH history, the Office of NIH History and Stetten Museum has initiated “Behind the Mask: Real Stories from NIH Staff About Life During the Covid-19 Pandemic.” The project is seeking personal reflections about how those who work at NIH have experienced the Covid-19 pandemic and is collecting documents, photos, objects and other types of media that will help narrate the story of Covid-19.
