Course Description:

On October 4th 1951 Henrietta Lacks, an African-American mother of five died of cervical cancer on a segregated ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore at the age of 31. Yet her legacy lives in an immortal cell line generated from her cancerous tumor. Known as HeLa, the cells harvested and disseminated without her knowledge or consent contributed to major scientific breakthroughs including the polio vaccine, cloning, and chemotherapy, that continue to advance medical research today. Written by Rebecca Skloot in compelling prose, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks chronicles the story of this poor and largely illiterate tobacco farmer and the impact the celebrity of her cells had on her family. Please join Dr. Kathryn Artnak, a bioethicist and Professor of Nursing at Angelo State University, for a discussion of the many ethical issues surrounding this intriguing narrative. Copies of the 2010 New York Times non-fiction bestseller, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks are available for checkout through the DSHS Library
