Event Details

Meeting Objective:

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) are sponsoring a workshop on long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery. The purpose of this workshop is to review the current state-of-the-science in regards to long-term outcomes of bariatric surgery, determine critical gaps in understanding, and strategize about methods to leverage existing clinical studies to fill those gaps. A variety of stakeholders are being invited to the workshop to present their viewpoints. This will be a 1.5-day workshop to be held May 22-23, 2013, on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

Directions/Travel

Meeting Location:

Lister Hill Auditorium
Building 38 A
National Institutes of Health
Bethesda, MD

NIH Visitor Information:

The Lister Hill Auditorium is located on the NIH Campus in building 38A. For a map, general information, and directions to and around the NIH Campus, visit: http://parking.nih.gov/visitor_access_map.htm .

NIH Security:

The NIH, like all federal government facilities, has instituted security measures to ensure the safety of NIH employees, patients, and visitors. The national threat advisory level, determined by the Department of Homeland Security ( http://www.whitehouse.gov/homeland ) , currently is yellow (elevated).

Perimeter Security:

All visitor vehicles, including taxicabs, hotel and airport shuttles, delivery trucks, and vans will be inspected before being allowed on campus. Visitors will be asked to show one (1) form of identification (a government-issued photo ID: driver’s license, passport, green card, etc.) and to state the purpose of their visit. Be sure to allow at least 15-20 minutes for this vehicle inspection procedure.

Building Security:

Due to the checking of IDs at the perimeter, employees and visitors will not be required to show their ID again to gain access to the majority of buildings on the NIH Campus during the normal business day.

Employees and visitors should continue to wear their identification prominently at all times while on campus.

Guards will remain at certain buildings to address specific program requirements, such as sensitive research and safety concerns. At building entrances where guards are posted:

  • Employees must show a DHHS-issued photo ID (for example, your NIH-issued ID badge).
  • Visitors may be required to log-in, wear a visitor's pass, and be escorted by an employee through the building.
  • Visitors may be required to pass through a metal detector and have bags, backpacks, or purses inspected or x-rayed as they enter buildings.
  • Security staff will confiscate any suspicious or potentially dangerous materials. U.S. code prohibits bringing any dangerous weapons onto federal property, including anything with a blade longer than 21/2 inches. Meeting participants may want to leave extra bags or personal materials at their hotel to minimize the time needed for inspection.

Weekday Pedestrian Campus Access:

All visitors must enter through the NIH Gateway Center at Metro or the West Gateway Center (see the Visitor Map at http://parking.nih.gov/visitor_access_map.htm ).

  • Gateway Center
    Wisconsin Avenue at Gateway Drive (near the Metro)
