Overview

This will be the final of 9 programs that focus on the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Fifty years after the rights of Henrietta Lacks were ignored, federal law and ethical guidelines now govern the use of human subjects in research. How well do such safeguards work in an era of dwindling privacy and widening socioeconomic gaps?
