The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
This storyboard does not have a description.
Who's telling us about Henrietta's cells?
Oh...by the way, Henrietta's cells are "immortal"
Sorry, no time to explain.
What?! Henrietta's alive, someone explain what's going on!!!
Can someone tell me whats going on?
Scientists spent years researching and experimenting with Henrietta's cells, yet nobody bothered to tell the Lacks family.
When the scientists told the Lacks family about Henrietta, it was very vague information and didn't explain it to the family so they would understand.
The scientists would go to extended family to get permission to research Henrietta's genetic blueprint, while when Lawrence Lacks asked what was happening, he was told nothing!
