Four-part Series on Medical Ethics and Racial Justice

The DUSON Community Health Improvement Partnership Program (D-CHIPP) and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion present this four-part film and discussion series on Medical Ethics and Racial Justice. The second film in the series will be the story of Henrietta Lacks and HeLa cells. A facilitated discussion will take place following the film. In the last of the series, we will view the Hollywood film, "The Best of Enemies" and the unlikely collaboration efforts of Ann Atwater and C.P. Ellis to desegregate Durham schools.
