About Henrietta Lacks Memorial Award

The Henrietta Lacks Memorial Award was established by the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute to honor former Turner Station resident and Johns Hopkins cancer patient Henrietta Lacks, whose cells helped make possible ground-breaking advances in medical research. This award highlights the importance of community-university collaborations, recognizes the accomplishments which can be achieved by such partnerships, and continues to support the efforts of the partnership. The monetary gift will be given to the primary community partner in the collaboration.
