'NIH Rocks!'
Youngsters Bring Vitality to Workplace

Like a sort of magic bullet pharmaceutical, injected into the veins of a bulky patient, the 1,400-some children who participated in Take Your Child to Work Day 2002 at NIH on Apr. 25 brought smiles and vitality everywhere they went. They could be found working their transformation literally everywhere, from the lobby exhibit at the National Library of Medicine, to the 14th floor of the Clinical Center, to the Children's Inn and points in between.
