More Capstone Events: "Where Are We Now?" Panel

You've heard about what's on board for Friday April 15th, but there's also a number of great events planned for Saturday, April 16th at WID.

After learning about a number of topics relevant to HeLa on Friday, from race in medicine to bioethics to ownership issues and more, come to the second panel discussion, "Where are We Now?" 60 years after Henrietta Lacks' cells were taken, we still face many of the same issues today. What has changed, and what hasn't? Learn and discuss with faculty members from UW Law and Medicine departments in a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Susan Lederer, Chair, Department of Medical History and Bioethics. The panel will be held on April 16th from 10:30 am - 12 pm.

Panelists include
Norm Fost, Professor, UW School of Medicine and Public Health, Alta Charo, Professor, UW Law School, and Pilar Ossorio, Professor, UW Law School. We hope you'll join us there!
