The Communications Office at SPHHS participated in GW's holiday door decorating contest with their entry, "Be the picture of health this holiday season." The door celebrates the many aspects of health and is interactive. Participants can customize the door display with how they are staying mentally and physically healthy this holiday season and then have their photo take as a "picture of health". The door will be on display until Dec. 20th -- stop by 2175 K street, suite 350 to show us how you'll be the picture of health this holiday and have your photo added this album!
"There are very few real heroes in life and with the passing of Nelson Mandela we have lost one of the finest. For it is not often that a single human being revolutionizes a nation and in the process, transforms the world. His fight against apartheid, his imprisonment and his subsequent willingness to selflessly collaborate with his oppressors with the hope of creating a better society inspired all of us. For me this is the hallmark of a true leader. A willingness to put aside the personal to resolve conflict is the stamp of true courage. Even though we are deeply saddened by his passing, Nelson Mandela lives on in all of us…his spirit and humanity will never be forgotten." - SPHHS Dean Lynn R. Goldman
