A veteran of three space shuttle flights, Dr. Rhea Seddon will speak to the energetic young audience during Girls in Aviation Day Nashville at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center on March 12.

Rhea was one of the first six women to enter the astronaut program. After leaving NASA in 1997, she became the assistant chief medical officer of the Vanderbilt Medical Group in Nashville where she led an innovative program to improve patient safety, quality of care, and team effectiveness by the use of an aviation-based model of CRM.

During the conference, Rhea will also be signing copies of her new book Go For Orbit in the exhibit hall Saturday afternoon. View the full Author’s Table schedule here.

The full day of Girls in Aviation Day activities will take place during the 27th annual International Women in Aviation Conference. The events aim to provide an age-appropriate introduction to aviation for girls age 10-17.
