I read an awesome book over my winter break! Have you ever heard of Henrietta Lacks?? I hadn't. The book I read was titled "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks". Her stolen cells revolutionized what scientists could do to learn about diseases and how to prevent and vaccinate.
I teach about cells and diseases, so this fit right into what I teach and added a depth of learning and conversation. It added to my knowledge depth as well.
HBO had a movie based on the book as well:

@Meridith-Mitchell Great book to incorporate into classroom reading. Our Bio II and AP Bio students read it. Eye opening for sure!

I used this book several years ago when I was teaching Anatomy and Physiology and Public Health classes. The students really enjoyed it and we turned it into a bioethics debate.
