The Lab community is invited to attend the 2016 Gertrude Scharff-Goldhaber Award Event.

Kathryn Meehan, the 2016 Goldhaber Award recipient will make her presentation by Skype. Featured speakers include Alfred (Fred) Scharff Goldhaber (son of Gertrude), who is a Professor at the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics at Stony Brook University. Fred will be speaking about his mother's career as a woman scientist, particularly here at BNL, and of her participation in the formation of Brookhaven Women in Science and other programs at BNL that still thrive today. In addition we will have Camille van der Watt who will talk about her experiences attending the Lab-sponsored SciComp-100 Workshop this summer.

A reception will be held following the award ceremony in honor of Gertrude Scharff-Goldhaber and all the participants
