Kevin Uhrmacher (Design) and Angela Wong (Design) are credited for their work on the Human Tissue Donation series. Check out “Interactive: The Anatomy Of Human Tissue Profits” and “Calculating The Value Of Human Tissue Donation” for their work.

Daniel Frohlich (Audience Insight and Research): “I conducted my first usability test of the Infinite Player with an audience member and I started tracking my Intern Edition story.” Additionally, Daniel wanted it to be known that when he declared something was “ludicrous,” he was served by a fellow intern and sent this gem.
Johanna Cohoon (Corporate Sponsorship): “I played mini-golf at the National Building Museum with the Digital Marketing team.”
Angela Wong (Design): “I went to Pittsburgh last weekend for my sister’s bachelorette party. We went to the farmer’s market and the Natural History Museum.”
Nicole Lehotsky (Music Library): “Aside from the book launch party I went to last week, this past week, I made a casserole.” (photo below)
