Intern Captures Fresh Views of Campus

One can get a little dizzy wondering where to put one's foot next in this photo, taken at the center of campus.

Veterans of employment at NIH can become blind to the campus' reserves of grandeur. Sometimes, it takes the eyes of a summer intern to see the place afresh. These images of NIH buildings — taken by a college student ambitious enough to combine molecular biology with freelance photography — share a perspective of awe, of edifices seen from a posture of humility and wonder. That perspective seems to sneak up only occasionally on people for whom this landscape has become routine.

Telemedicine Under Way At the Clinical Center

It used to be a big problem if you were here and your doctor were there. One or the other would have to travel for you to get the best care. What if you were too sick to travel, or your doctor couldn't leave other patients, or you needed a specialist halfway across the country? An extension of the technology that gave birth to face-to-face video conferenced business meetings is quickly becoming a solution.

Called telemedicine, the new field can bring the best medicine to you, wherever you happen to be. It gives new meaning to the words "doctors on call."
