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.
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.
