OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—March is Women’s History Month, and ORISE is celebrating women—past and present—who are making history in STEM. All month long we’ll be featuring female scientists who are currently shaping the future of radiological research, health physics and other research that is critical to ORISE and the STEM community. These women will tell the stories of discovering their passion for STEM, and share the stories of friends, family and other women who guided them towards a STEM career along the way.
