From the EDI Director: 2020 Black History Month

Debra C. Chew Esq.

Dear NIH,

The National Institutes of Health is pleased to recognize February as Black History Month. African Americans have made tremendous contributions to the advancement of biomedical research and the work of the NIH over the years. This year we celebrate the individuals who support this research in administrative roles here at the NIH.

I encourage you to visit the NIH Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion’s website, Twitter, and Instagram pages to view its online campaign focusing on the theme: "Advancing Science through a Different Lens."

Sincerely yours,

Debra Chew, Esq.
EDI Director
