Henrietta Lacks Day
Ms. Langis' College Biology students observed Henrietta Lacks Day on February 1, 2024. This day honors Henrietta Lacks' contribution to the field of medicine through the use of her cells. Lacks and her family were initially unaware that her cells were being used for research. Students observe this day to acknowledge the unethical treatment Lacks experienced. To learn more about Lacks, see this school newspaper article written by McCown Times' very own Catherine Feery and Eli Karov.
