Front and back handout for the movie "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" produced by Oprah Winfrey. The book written by Rebecca Skloot.
Excellent for unit on Cellular Biology. Includes questions, time table that certain questions appear, and parts of the movie to skip for young viewers.
HeLa cells have been revolutionizing for scientists all over the world. Since their discovery, vaccinations, cancer treatments, and transplants have been made possible. However, where did HeLa cells come from? This movie was produced and starred by Oprah Winfrey. She does an excellent job demonstrating the tenuous and controversial relationship between culture and science.
