Guided Tour of the ‘Informing Consent’ Exhibit

Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Ebling Library, Health Sciences Learning Center

In concert with the Go Big Read program, Ebling’s exhibit contains a display of original books, magazines, newspapers and photographs depicting the story of human subject experimentation, the world of Henrietta Lacks (circa 1951), the ethics of body and tissue ownership issues, the science of HeLa, and the history of research and treatment at UW-Madison. Material from throughout campus will illustrate the themes that Rebecca Skloot raised in her popular, thought-provoking book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Micaela Sullivan-Fowler, curator and librarian liaison to the Department of Medical History & Bioethics, will provide a guided look at the exhibit.
