AACHAC Presents "An Evening with HeLa"
PLEASE NOTE, THE FREE FRIDAY SEMINAR, HELD @ FOSTER CITY COMMUNITY CENTER, IS SOLD OUT!!

Henrietta Lacks was an African American woman whose cells, taken without her knowledge, in 1951 became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization, and more.

Published in 2010, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks has been a worldwide phenomenon, spending 75 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list and winning multiple awards, and was adapted into a full-length movie featured on HBO and starring Oprah Winfrey.

Join the African American Community Health Advisory Committee (AACHAC), in partnership with San Francisco-Peninsula Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and the San Mateo County Health System, for an extraordinary event that features a presentation with members of Henrietta Lacks family.
