Med students aid C. America

A national drive to send 40 new

;and El Salvador is currently under
way at the University's Medical
The University's chapter of the
American Medical Student As-
sociation (AMSA) created the plan
last year and made it a national
Icampaign. The drive is mainly
motivated by humanitarian con-
cerns, but political reasons also
splay a role, according to medical
.student Jim Kerwin, the project's
"We support progress and health
,care in Central America," said
,Kerwin. "We support the changes
,being made in Nicaragua that help
;provide health care to everyone,
,especially the poor. We also
rsupport the University of El
'Salvador, because we think they are
trying to provide health care to their

of the politics behind the advance.

Kerwin praised the Nicaraguan
,government, however, for making
more progress in health care than

lack of progress leaves most of the
responsibility for improving health
care upon the University of El
Salvador in San Salvador, he added.
THE LOCAL AMSA chapter
hopes to collect and send at least 40
stethoscopes to medical students in
Nicaragua and El Salvador. The
recent earthquake in El Salvador and
continuing war in Nicaragua only
make the need for stethoscopes
greater, according to AMSA co-
director Joan Filler, a University
"Stethoscopes are one of the best
primary tools for anyone working
with any problems," she said.
Most of the stethoscopes going
to Nicaragua and El Salvador are
donated by University medical
students. "All first year medical
students are given a stethoscope
gratis by a pharmaceutical com-
pany," said internal medicine Prof.
Andrew Zweifler. Because most
students opt to buy a better quality
stethoscope early on, they end up
with the free stethoscope laying
around and getting no use.
AMSA sent 30 stethoscopes to
Nicaragua last year and had no
problem with U.S. Customs
sending the supplies.
The University of El Salvador
and the National University of
Nicaragua's medical school will be
the recipients of AMSA's
