“The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”

September 29, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Deepening racial and ethnic divisions in the United States have created an urgent need for the healthcare community to re-focus attention on ending racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care.

At its core, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is the story of a woman, her family, their invaluable gift to medical science, and their incredible journey through the politics of race and medicine. We invite you to this special program in Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall, which will feature David Lacks, Jr. and Victoria Baptiste, RN, in a conversation about their grandmother, her extraordinary contribution to medical science, and their family’s role in her legacy and the future of research.

The program will call attention to the Disparities Solutions Center’s efforts to create a national network of trained health care providers and policy makers committed to providing the highest quality care for all and ending disparities in health and health care.
