Share your opinions, thoughts, and questions about The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks or issues related to identity, genetic research and ethics, medical access and poverty, or other related topics.

Read what the experts on campus say and respond with your thoughts.

Dr. Laury Oaks uses her perspective as an anthropologist and Professor of Feminist Studies to analyze author Rebecca Skloot’s approach to getting the story of Henrietta Lacks.  Go to the UCSB Reads site to read Dr. Oaks’ essay, and use the “comments” link at the bottom of that page to join in the conversation.
