Please tune in 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 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.

Featuring:
- Members of the Lacks family
- Dr. Gregg Semenza – 2019 Nobel Prize recipient of Physiology or Medicine
- Dr. Sherita Hill Golden- Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer at Johns Hopkins Medicine
- Dr. Lisa Cooper- Director of the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute
