Female Frontiers presents...
"First Nurse to the First Astronauts"
Live from the Learning Technologies Channel Studio, Female
Frontiers brings you a visit with a remarkable lady: Dee O'Hara, the first
nurse to NASA's first astronauts. Part luck, part pluck, her career path
to this job will probably surprise you. As she said, "When they asked
if I wanted the job of astronaut nurse, I wasn't really sure what the
job was, but I accepted." Dee O'Hara spins tales about our nations Space
history with a warmth and wit that will surely captivate you. She developed
a close relationship with the astronauts and their families. She says
of the early launches, "It was like putting one of my best friends on
a roman candle." This past fall she was invited to return for her long-time
friend John Glenn's launch. You won't want to miss this hour of reminiscing
about a job that no longer exists, with a chance to ask your questions.
