Marissa Harrison - Associate Professor of Psychology, Penn State Harrisburg

Book Title: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Author: Rebecca Skloot

Book Description:

I chose this book because as a professor and researcher of psychology I do my best to convey the importance of never losing sight of the human being when striving to understand the human condition. We owe a debt of gratitude for the gift that Henrietta Lacks gave us and to the author for telling this important story.  To the reader: I wish you a life filled with curiosity, patience, wisdom...and kindness to you and from you.
