'No Wrong Time To Do Right Thing'
Zerhouni, Staff Present 'Roadmap' to Bethesda Campus Audience

By Rich McManus

NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni offers details on implementing the Roadmap.
Launching a communications campaign to keep his Roadmap for Medical Research initiative well-explained and well-justified, NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni addressed the home team — campus employees — as part of a nearly 2-hour presentation in Lipsett Amphitheater on Feb. 20. A week later, Zerhouni and the panel he has named to lead portions of the three-element map gave a similar presentation to an extramural audience at the Marriott in Pooks Hill. These events — along with a dedicated web site, a Roadmap intranet and a listserv — combine to keep stakeholders and the public updated on Roadmap status and progress, said NIH deputy director Dr. Raynard Kington, who introduced the employee session.
