RHONE-POULENC RORER ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF 'MAALOX MOMENTS(TM) STRESSED BY SUCCESS' CONTEST

 RHONE-POULENC RORER ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF
 'MAALOX MOMENTS(TM) STRESSED BY SUCCESS' CONTEST
 PHILADELPHIA, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Rhone-Poulenc Rorer Pharmaceuticals Inc., the maker of Maalox(R) -- the No. 1-selling antacid brand in the world -- has announced the winners of its national "Maalox Moments(TM) Stressed By Success" contest.
 Letters announcing the contest were sent to personnel directors at 5,000 organizations, corporations and companies across the country seeking stories of employees' most memorable Maalox Moments in the workplace.
 Of the entries received, two were selected as winners because they best captured the true nature of a Maalox Moment, which can occur when the challenges, pressures and unpredictabilities of "taking life on" play havoc with your stomach. The winning moments were submitted by Alyce McMenimen, a kindergarten teacher from Gloucester, Mass., and Peg Pitzen, an occupational health nurse and wellness director at Sargento Cheese Company, Inc., in Plymouth, Wis.
 "It was not easy to select only two winners from the entries that we received," said Patricia Wojdyla, vice president of marketing at Rhone- Poulenc Rorer Pharmaceuticals Inc. "We recognized that each person was meeting the challenges of life and successfully managing the symptoms of their acid indigestion with Maalox. Alyce and Peg were selected because their stories were unique, yet they represented the stress felt by millions of working Americans every day."
 McMenimen explained that her Maalox Moments are often accompanied by a full moon due to the strange power that the moon seems to hold over her five- and six-year-old students. She also recounted the experience of teaching 120 kindergarten students to fingerpaint. This Maalox Moment came in the form of 1,200 orange-painted fingers reaching out to hug the exhausted teacher.
 Pitzen's entry was in the form of a poem. Through rhyme, she described the Maalox Moments that accompany her work with sick and well employees as they pass through her office for hearing tests, weight loss counseling, job-related injuries, sickness and a variety of other reasons.
 As their prize, McMenimen and Pitzen each will be treated to a relaxing weekend for two at a fashionable spa. The weekend trip will provide an enjoyable break in the winners' daily routines so that they can return to work relaxed, refreshed and ready to face the challenges of new Maalox Moments.
 Rhone-Poulenc Rorer is one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, with more than $3.8 billion in sales. The company said its mission is to become the best pharmaceutical company in the world by dedicating its resources, talents and energies to help improve human health and the quality of life of people around the world.
