Making Donation a 'Lifestyle'
Blood Bank Seeks to Swell Ranks of NIH Givers

By Rich McManus

Dr. Susan Leitman and
donor recruiter Alan Decot
If you haven't donated a unit of blood, or some platelets, at the NIH Blood Bank lately, now might be a good time to revisit that altruistic act. Not only does the bank have a continuing need, especially for O-positive and O-negative donors, but also the rewards are becoming more palpable.

Calling All Super Heroes!
CFC 2004 Swings Into Action at NIH

By Jane DeMouy

Coming Wednesday, Oct. 6 to a tent near you: NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni will be calling all hands to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Well, maybe not exactly.

What he will be saying as he officially launches the NIH Combined Federal Campaign is that NIH'ers can become heroes to people who need their help. "Be a Super Hero! You Have the Power to Help" is the 2004 slogan, and faster than a speeding bullet, well-known super heroes will be popping up around campus, at Executive Blvd. and 2 Democracy in coming months. Expect frequent sightings of the Man of Steel, the Web Swinger and the Caped Crusader (a.k.a. Batman).
