Institutes Compete in Spirited Jeopardy!

Photos: Ernie Branson

A challenging game of Jeopardy! took place Oct. 25 under a big tent on Paul Rogers Plaza in front of Bldg. 1, as groups of institute directors (or their representatives) competed against each other, striving to be the first to press the buzzer with the right answer, er question.

In the end, while the Blue team came in first, the ultimate winner was the Combined Federal Campaign, which sponsored the event to remind the NIH community about the campaign and the more than 4,500 charities it supports.
