Jan Lipkin is a volunteer after retiring from NIDA where she served as deputy communications director for 15 years. She worked on many national health campaigns such as PEERx, the prescription drug abuse education project on NIDA’s teen web site. (Check out NIDA for Teens at www.teens.drugabuse.gov.) Ms. Lipkin plans to spend most of her time volunteering at the National Zoo here in Washington D.C., working with reptiles and great apes, like Bonnie the orangutan that she is using as her avatar.
