Work and Family Month at NIH banner Join us in October for Work and Family Month at NIH
"As the nation’s biomedical research agency, we are committed to improving health for all Americans. Science has shown that our family relationships have an important effect on our physical well-being. I am proud of the substantial work-life resources available to the NIH workforce, and I encourage each of you to participate in Work and Family Month so you can take advantage of the resources that are most helpful to you."
- Dr. Francis Collins, NIH Director
