CREATE invites you to attend the viewing of the HBO movie: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
Please join us as we watch the compelling true story of a poor African-American woman whose cancerous cells helped create the first immortal human cell line and established a multi-billion dollar vaccine industry—all without the family's informed consent. This film will be followed by a brief discussion from audience participants.
Popcorn and drinks will be served, and pajamas are encouraged.
“Connecting the Dots: Using Social Network Analysis in STEM Higher Education”
Social networks are the relationships among different entities and are studied in many disciplines. This talk provides an overview of social networks including theory and data collection, as well as a discussion of 3 different studies I conducted using social network analysis: a study on faculty teaching discussion networks, a study on graduate student networks, and a study on undergraduate learning community networks. For each study, I will discuss how these results could be used beyond simply describing these networks.
