NHLBI Art Poster Contest Celebration

As part of NHLBI's 50th anniversary celebration, the institute and the Friends of the NHLBI sponsored an art poster contest in three states: Georgia, Mississippi and North Carolina. The intent was to raise public understanding of cardiovascular disease, particularly among kids. High school students were given an opportunity to create a poster design that would increase the visibility of the cardiovascular disease problem confronting the American people and highlight the importance of medical research. Representatives from university art departments, the medical community, local politicians and community leaders were invited to be judges. The top 10 posters from each state were on exhibit in the main lobby of the Clinical Center during May 13-29. They can also be seen on the Web at http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/personal/condonv/t1/html/apc.htm.

NHLBI recently was host to first-prize art poster contest winners from three states: Georgia, Mississippi, and North Carolina. Pictured above are (from l) Donte Hiley (Ga.); Mollie Mills (Miss.); Dr. Claude Lenfant, director, NHLBI; and Elizabeth Little (N.C.).
