The book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks should be required reading assignments in nurse anesthesia programs.
Let’s be honest, if CRNAs and nurse anesthesia students speak to patients every day about informed consent, then we should understand the impact of racial discrimination & exploitation of bioethics.
I would absolutely love to be invited to speak to any graduate nurse anesthesia program in length about this consequential book as part of their curriculum.
