Players from the National Football League’s Washington Commanders visited the Clinical Center pediatrics unit on Oct. 23, just in time for Halloween festivity planning. 

After greeting patients and staff and posing for photos, the players dropped in at the Children’s Inn at NIH, where they participated in a fall party and autograph and photo session.
