Join us to discuss the life of Henrietta Lacks, a poor black tobacco farmer, whose cells – taken without her knowledge in 1951 – became one of the most important tools in medicine.  Her cells were vital for the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping and more.  We will review New York Times Bestseller, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks along with other data to discuss the story of the collision between ethics, race and medicine.
