NIH Director Francis Collins Sings “Knock Out Disease”###
Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, sings an original song about the ubiquity of disease and need for health research. “Disease don’t care if you’re black or white, disease don’t care if you’re left or right, disease don’t care if you’re rich or poor, disease will find a way to come a-knocking at your door. So come on people won’t you join me please? Let’s get it all together and knock out disease,” he sings. Collins also points out the DNA double helix in mother of pearl carved into his guitar’s fretboard.
