Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Dr. Anthony Rene

Secretary Kathleen Sebelius (l) recently recognized Dr. Anthony Rene at the HHS offices in Washington, D.C., for 50 years of federal service. The majority of his active career was at NIGMS, where he managed research training programs for underrepresented minorities, individuals with disabilities, people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those re-entering research after a hiatus. Rene continues this work as a volunteer in the NICHD Division of Special Populations. “My passion is working with students,” he said. He gets requests for advice from students in high school and college levels and those seeking doctoral degrees. One of the hallmarks of his mentoring style is his accessibility. “I tell them I’m available evenings and weekends. They can always get in touch with me,” he said. “It’s what I do.”
