Dr. Foosbottom Teaches Henrietta Lacks & HELA CELLS
Our resident expert, Teaching Assistant, Dr. Foosbottom, challenges students to know more or the rest of the story. There is no more important true story than the details behind the life and times of Henrietta Lacks. This is incredibly relevant knowledge that takes you through history including an animated Jonas Salk explaining the term "cell," the Bubonic Plague, smallpox and Native Americans, and yellow fever and the slave trade. All this sets up the viewer for a special animated news report about a virus gone out of control.
