By: Dianna Ortiz, O.S.U.

The HBO film The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is based on Rebecca Skloot’s 2010 book of the same title about the life of Henrietta Lacks, a woman whose cancer cells revolutionized medical science and whose identity had been hidden from most of the world for decades while countless companies profited off her cells.
