John Peterson in the Office of Communications and Public Liaison won an Honorable Mention at the April 19 NIH ceremony celebrating plain language held at Lipsett Amphitheater in Bethesda. The award was presented by Elias Zerhouni, NIH Director, for "Oceans of Discovery: How the Study of Oceans Can Improve Your Health," a fact sheet prepared by Peterson describing the joint NIEHS-NSF Centers for Oceans and Human Health program. The citation reads, "This fact sheet describes current research conducted by the NIEHS and other agencies on the health risks associated with exposure to marine toxins, as well as the medicinal benefits these toxins may provide. The colorful photographs and brief descriptions of research findings are presented in a way that is easily digested by a lay audience."
