FMHI Research Library Faculty Panel Discussion on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, 02/26/14.

(L to R): Paul Stiles, Tamara Baker, Penne Williams

On February 26, 2014, the FMHI Research Library held a faculty panel discussion centered on the 2013-2014 USF Common Reading Experience selection, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.  The panel featured three faculty members from the USF College of Behavioral and Community Sciences: Tamara Baker, Ph.D., Paul Stiles, Ph.D., J.D., and Penne Williams, MSW, LCSW.  Following a 30-minute presentation with topics ranging from research and medical ethics, health disparities, and the grieving and bereavement process, a lively discussion considering race, socioeconomic class, ethical and moral research, and both contemporary and future issues in the research process ensued.



Attendees consider the ethical, moral, racial, and socioeconomic factors presented by the panelists.


If you were able to attend the presentation, we hope you had a great time.  If you weren’t able to attend, other  events centered on The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks continue around campus.  Check out the events calendar for more information.

The A.A. Heckman Endowed Fellowship Fund is intended to fund research, study, documentation, and dissemination of archival materials that advance the historical record and provide insight into America’s continuing relationship with-and response to-alcohol and drug use, misuse, and addiction.

Depending upon applicants’ anticipated expenses, it provides partial to full financial support for travel to and from an archives collection, including but not limited to the Hazelden Pittman Archives Collection.* Room and board expenses may also be eligible. The Fellowship will be paid upon receipt of a copy of a written document of the project’s findings or results, and dated and itemized expense receipts.

The number of Fellowships awarded each year and the amounts of Fellowships awarded each year will vary, depending upon the number of qualified applicants who submit applications and who are accepted, as well as the estimations of anticipated expenses. Fellowship awards may vary from $100 to $4,000 per award.
Applications may require an interview. Applications are reviewed by committee, whose decisions are final.
