Free Skin Screenings
For Staff Next Week

The Lab's Health Care Facilitator wants to remind everyone that May is National Skin Cancer Month. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. Some skin cancers cause local problems, while others can kill. Skin cancer can be cured when detected early. Health Services is conducting a free skin cancer screening next Wednesday, from 8 to 11:45 a.m. Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite sun hats to see how well they rate in protection. Prizes will be awarded for the top three. Call x6266 to book an appointment for screening.

National Science Bowl Competition Concludes

After five days of intense question-and-answer sessions, one team rose to the top of the heap at the National Science Bowl, hosted last weekend by the Department of Energy in Washington D.C. The winner was Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Virginia. Mission San Jose High School in Fremont placed second. Harker High School, which won the Lab's regional competition, did not place. Go here to read a DOE press release on the event, and here to read Energy Secretary Bodman's remarks to the students.
