NIH Asian/Pacific Islander American Heritage Program
Celebrates 26th Year

The NIH Asian/Pacific Islander American Heritage Program began celebrating its 26th anniversary with a lunchtime program of Asian food and demonstrations of Asian arts and crafts on May 15. Korean drummers provided noontime rhythms. Also on hand at the opening event were recruiters from the Asian Pacific Islander Organization (far l) and the NIH Marrow Donor Program.

Luncheon sales consisted of food from China, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Thailand. A percentage of the proceeds benefit the Scholarship Fund of the NIH Asian/Pacific Islander American Organization. At left, midday diners are serenaded by an ensemble of Korean drummers.
