Be Part of 'Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work' Day, Thursday, Apr. 22

This year, NIH celebrates the 10th annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day." The event begins at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Apr. 22. From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the institutes and centers will host educational and fun activities designed to let your child experience the world of biomedical research.

Volunteers are still needed to sponsor activities for the children. If you work in a laboratory or administrative office and would like to be a presenter, contact Sandra King at (301) 435-2524 voice, (301) 435-2899 TTY, or; or Gary Morin at (301) 496-4628 voice, (301) 496-9755 TTY, or If you'd like to volunteer to help during the event or want more information, visit The national web site also includes more information about the day —

The committee organizing "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work" is asking the NIH community for activities and handouts (pens, cups, brochures, pencils, water bottles, etc.) for inclusion in registration ("goody") bags. The committee invites participation by institutes, centers, labs, departments, offices and support services; it needs help to make the event a success by designing interesting on-the-job activities.

Approximately 1,000 children are expected to participate in the day. Activities will be hosted at several locations throughout campus. You can help by identifying activities that will offer children a learning experience in the occupations at NIH. These activities should introduce children to the vital roles that their parents play in the NIH workforce and expose them to careers they might not have envisioned. For more information, contact King or Morin.
