Career, Training Expo Draws Hundreds

Hundreds of employees attended a career development and training expo on June 26. The Office of the Director's Equal Employment Opportunity advisory committee organized the event to provide employees with information on programs offered within the NIH community. The event gave employees an opportunity to meet with representatives of these programs and receive advice and handouts.

NIH acting director Dr. Ruth Kirschstein (r), NIH acting deputy director Dr. Yvonne Maddox and NIH Acting Executive Officer Charles Leasure open the career development and training expo.

The expo began with words of encouragement and support from Dr. Ruth Kirschstein, NIH acting director; Dr. Yvonne Maddox, NIH acting deputy director; and Charles Leasure, NIH acting executive officer. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the exhibit area followed. Framed event posters were presented to Steve Benowitz, director of the Office Human Resource Management, and to Dr. Jack Whitescarver, acting director of the Office of AIDS Research, for their assistance and sponsorship of the event.

Expo planning committee chair Joyce Starks (l) and cochair Tarnzetta Hampton offer remarks. Along with Charles Leasure, they organized the expo as an activity of the OD EEO advisory committee.
