Panel Discussion and Student Showcase – Nov. 19th

Panel Discussion and Student Showcase: A UNBF Libraries Common Read event open to all

Join us for a lively evening exploring the life and legacy of Henrietta Lacks. A Panel Discussion featuring members of the UNB community will be followed by a Showcase of undergraduate student research.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot raises a variety of important issues at the intersection of science, research ethics, race, and poverty.

The book has been read by first year students and many instructors in the Faculties of Arts, Nursing, Renaissance College and Science. Copies are available to be borrowed at each of our libraries.

Conversation will be guided by Dr. Alan Sears’ PhD students from the Faculty of Education.

All are welcome to come and listen or to be part of the discussion.

The reception and showcase are open to all as a celebration of the student projects which have been inspired by UNBF Libraries Common Read.
