The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is holding its second annual fitness and health week—focused on stress management modalities, meditation and yoga—September 8–11, 2009. The event is dedicated to improving the well- being of NIH employees, local community residents and those farther afield. The program is free and open to the public. After the success of last year’s premiere event, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services designated September as National Yoga Month.
