2012 Keynote Speaker—Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

AAPS is pleased to announce that Rebecca Skloot will serve as the keynote speaker at the 2012 AAPS Annual Meeting and Exposition. Skloot is author of the best-selling book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which took Skloot more than a decade to research and write and which more than 60 media have named the best book of 2010.

Skloot’s book focuses on the life of Henrietta Lacks, better known as HeLa, whose cells were taken without her permission and became an important tool for medicine. Lacks is almost unknown, but Skloot and her book are quickly changing that.
