Black History Month: HeLa 100 – Race and Eugenics 2022
Join School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Division of Biology and Biomedical Science’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Student and Alumni Affairs for a discussion regarding race and eugenics in relation to Henrietta Lacks. This program seeks to be a critical space for participants to recognize how science has perpetuated harmful and racist narratives that deeply affect marginalized communities. Participants will read a short selection of pre-work to prepare for the discussion. This program is part of WUSTL’s commemoration of Henrietta Lacks’ 100th birthday.
