The panel includes James Childress, University Professor and Director of the Institute for Practical Ethics and Public Life; Holly Edwards, Vice-Mayor of Charlottesville and Parish Nurse; Jeanita Richardson, Associate Professor, Department of Public Health Sciences, School of Medicine; Patrick Tolan, Director of Youth-Nex, The U.Va. Center to Promote Effective Youth Development; and Karen Waters, Charlottesville Quality Community Council.
In May 2010, Dr. Tolan wrote this about the book.“This is the most compelling book I have read in recent years. It tells about the intersection of scientific progress and human dignity and shows in very personable stories, the thorny issues that need to be carefully considered by all of us undertaking research. The layering of the story of Henrietta’s life and family on the evolution of appreciation of (or lack thereof) of research participant rights against the background of race relations in our society and the remarkable reach of scientific advances related to her immortal cells makes a fully engrossing and convincing reminder of what human subject protections are all about.”
