'Take Your Child to Work Day,' Apr. 22
NIH will sponsor "Take Your Child to Work Day" on Thursday, Apr. 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The purpose is to introduce school children to the vital public services their parents provide and to encourage children to consider careers in medical research and the many fields that support it. Employees are welcome to bring a child ages 8 to 15 to work, with the supervisor's approval. Activities will be held throughout the day on campus and include hands-on laboratory tours, fire prevention and public safety demonstrations, and other information sessions and workshops provided by the institutes and centers. In addition, musical entertainment is planned as part of this year's activities.
Due to the popularity of the program and space limitations, preregistration is required for the workshops. Preregistration will be held in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10 on Tuesday, Apr. 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets to the workshops will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Information about activities will also be available at time of registration. For more information, contact Brenda Robertson at 443-0913 or Betsy Jett at 402-2675.
