U.S. Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), who represents the state's 8th congressional district, where NIH is located, stopped by the Natcher auditorium on July 12 for an hour-long town hall-style meeting with employees to discuss current topics of interest and share his experiences as a freshman member of Congress. Following a morning visit to the Children's Inn at NIH, the congressman greeted NIH'ers outside the auditorium before being introduced by NIH deputy director Dr. Raynard Kington.
