- Create 2 different photographs (using piclit) with strong words representing the two opposing perspectives towards Henrietta and her cells.
Picture A: represent the Lacks family who cherishes Henrietta as an actual person.
Picture B: represent of scientists/ John Hopkins Hospital (HeLa cells)

- Use Wordle as a creative way to illustrate the 3 sections in the book (life,death,immortality) and each of their unique message.

I am writing about the death of Henrietta and effect it had on the Lacks family from the perspective of Deborah Lacks in journal form. I plan to make it look like a journal and put it together like one.

I'm writing a paper on the bio-ethics and overall morality of what occurred to the Henrietta Lacks and her family, as well as commenting on the legal complications of tissue an cell "owning".

I might be doing extra credit with that discussion in Penengos class if Dylan is still gonna do that.

A meaningful class discussion with the ethics class. Comparing the morality versus the ethicality of the Moore Case, the Lacks Case, as well as many other bioethical issues.

I am doing a research paper on how Henrietta Lacks and her HeLa cells have contributed to Medicine and Medical History to help find vaccines and cures for diseases. The timeline I am focusing on is from the start of the 20th century to the present.
