The Recreation and Welfare Association (R&W) is Here for You

The NIH Recreation and Welfare (R&W) Association (https://govemployee.com/nih) serves as an employee services organization that provides affordable, top quality and well-directed services and programs that are diversified, beneficial, and focused on enhancing the health and well-being of the NIH staff, patients, and their families, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) community. The NIH R&W team of dedicated and hardworking employees and volunteers accomplishes this mission by providing and offering a variety of retail, fitness, leisure and charity fundraising activities.

Some upcoming activities include a Virtual Holiday Bazaar from November 16 through December 18 (https://govemployee.com/nih/2020-rw-holiday-bazaar/) and the 2021 Financial Webinars (https://govemployee.com/nih/financial-services/). You can also shop online for NIH-branded merchandise through the R&W's new e-commerce platform (https://bit.ly/3ny8VI3).
