If you're in Toronto around Wednesday, March 15 at 8:00 p.m., Dr. Roberta
Bondar will be visiting Scarborough Campus of the University of Toronto. 
The 25th Anniversary Watts Lecture takes place with Bondar addressing the
topic "Onwards & Upwards:  women in traditionally male work roles".
Admission and parking are free for this special event. 

Bondar was the first Canadian female astronaut in space when she flew
aboard the space shuttle, Discovery, in January of 1992, as a payload
specialist, performing life science and material science experiments in the
Spacelab and on the mid-deck. She has since left the Space Program and is
currently researching blood flow in the brain during microgravity and
various pathological states. Her book, Touching the Earth, will be on sale
at the Lecture, and afterwards, Dr. Bondar will do a brief signing session.
As a neurologist, professor, researcher, private pilot, scuba diver and
more, Dr. Bondar is sure to make the evening interesting. All are welcome!
