Friends at NIH staff, Therese Draddy, Program Manager, Heidi Williams, CEO, and Char Silberg, Communications Manager, kicked off Friends’ Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) this month at NIH’s special event embracing the theme “Show Some Love.”

WHY CHOOSE FRIENDS? (To all NIHers and Federal Government Employees)

It’s simple – three big reasons!

#1 FRIENDS provides housing, transportation and support for essential expenses to NIH patients and families.

#2 FRIENDS is an NIH charity located in the NIH Clinical Center, the nation’s largest research hospital.

#3 TOGETHER we can save lives and support research.

Go to and contribute to Friends of Patients at the NIH CFC.
