One Conference, One Book is an opportunity for you to read a single book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, and then to participate in a facilitated small group discussion about the book to grow the conversation about race across our field. The book serves as an excellent opportunity to discuss the conference themes of power, influence and responsibility. We ask you to read the book prior to the discussion.
