  •  Dean of the Academic Board Brig. Gen. Cindy Jebb hosted her first session of the “Dean’s Book Club” at the West Point Club, Oct. 6. From Oct. 6 -23, participants have the opportunity to read and discuss “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot.

    The U.S. Military Academy’s Dean of the Academic Board Brig. Gen. Cindy Jebb hosted her first session of the “Dean’s Book Club” at the West Point Club, Oct. 6.

    From Oct. 6-23, participants have the opportunity to read and discuss “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot.

    The book delves into the impact that Henrietta Lacks’ cells, known around the world as “HeLa cells,” have had in science throughout the last 60-plus years, as well as the ethical and scientific implications of human cell research.

    “The history of Henrietta Lacks and the HeLa cells raises important issues regarding science, ethics, race and class,” Skloot says in the introduction of her book. “I’ve done my best to present them clearly within the narrative of the Lacks story… There is much more to say on all the issues, but that is beyond the scope of this book, so I will leave it for the scholars and experts in the field to address.”

    The Dean’s Book Club consists of three sessions—each of which highlights a different interdisciplinary topic that is discussed in the book.
