Classy Seniors: Henrietta Lacks
Dr. Evan Hart, history professor at MWSU, presents the compelling true story of Henrietta Lacks, subject of the best-selling novel and movie, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." Dr. Hart will discuss the science as well as the ethical issues of the case, in which Lacks' cells were taken without her knowledge and "became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more."
