NEI 5K Is Largest Ever
The third 5K Walk/Run/Roll, held Oct. 19 by the National Eye Institute (NEI), was the largest ever with more than 500 participants from across NIH. Organizations also staffed booths and kiosks, providing health info and demonstrations.
“We have a dedicated, vibrant community here at NIH,” said NEI director Dr. Michael Chiang. “I hope this event gives you an opportunity to meet face-to-face with folks who perhaps you’ve only met virtually, and chat with many others you haven’t seen in a while.”
The annual event was suspended in 2020-2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
