The Pacific Region chapter of Alpha Lambda, Graduate Women in Science, will celebrate one year of activities with a public lecture, "Return to Pono: Challenging the Values of Modern Science."

The illustrated lecture by Dr. Harriet H. Natsuyama will take place on Tuesday, January 27, from 6:30-8 p.m. in room 411 of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa‘s Queen Liliuokalani Center for Student Services.
