Henrietta Lacks Memorial Lecture: 100 Years of Henrietta Lacks

Please tune in on Saturday, October 24 at Noon, for a special one hour video screening of the Henrietta Lacks Memorial Lecture: 100 Years of Henrietta Lacks.

This year, the impact of the coronavirus has significantly changed how we currently live, work, and communicate as a community. 2020 also marks 100 years of celebrating the life of a remarkable woman, Mrs. Henrietta Lacks. During this challenging time of a world pandemic, honoring her extraordinary legacy is both timely and a testament to how we all need to strive for a better world, strengthen community trust, and fulfill the promise of medicine.

As a tribute to Mrs. Lacks’ 100th birthday, we’ve assembled a cast of researchers and community members to discuss the impact of Henrietta Lacks and her cells in our past, present, and future.
