Living Legacy Photo Shoot

The Living Legacy of Henrietta Lacks

We are searching for volunteers that have been impacted by HeLa Cells and are willing to be photographed and have their picture displayed at the Henrietta Lacks Memorial Lecture on Saturday October 11, 2014.

Scientists, Researchers, lab technicians or any other personnel that work directly with the cells are encouraged to attend. We are also interested in people whose health has benefited by research using HeLa cells.

The purpose of this project is to promote the legacy of Henrietta Lacks through portraiture.  Each person will be photographed in the same way and each person’s connection to Henrietta will be recorded.  The goal is to promote awareness of her as a person, value her contribution to medical science and encourage dialogue of medical ethics.
