Medical author speaks at "Community Wellness Fair"

by Joanna Broder
Daily Health Issues Reporter_ __
While there have been many medical ad-
vances recently, along the way some doctors
have forgotten about the feelings of their pa-
tients, said Dr. Bernie Siegel, President of
the American Holistic Medical Association
at last night's Community Wellness Fair.
Siegel was the keynote speaker for the
fair that took place in the Power Center.
Siegel, author of the recent book Peace,
Love, and healing initiated his talk with
the request that all people who had never be-
* fore received applause stand. After slightly
hesitating, a few individuals rose and the rest

of the audience clapped and cheered.
Siegel explained to audience members
that he was "unhappy as a physician." He
went on to say, "I didn't know how to help
people I couldn't cure. . .(there was) no
course in medical school on how to help
people live. "
Siegel started a support group, Excep-
tional Cancer Patients (ECAP), in the late
1970s. ECAP, is a form of individual and
group therapy.
"I feel like there are a lot of shortcomings
at the University hospital that get in the way
of practicing medicine the way Bernie de-

scribes it," said David Miklethun a nurse at
the University hospital.
The fair was sponsored by Parish Partner-
ships of Washtenaw County. The Partner-
ships is a coalition of churches, synagogues,
temples, mental health organizations, educa-
tors and individual members.
The Partnerships have designated Febru-
ary as Washtenaw county Wellness Month.
The fair included educational exhibits on
various health related issues. Organizations
such as the American Heart Association and
the Washtenaw Council on Alcoholism set
up information booths at the fair.

Among the other exhibits was a model of
a mouth with a decaying tooth. Passersby

were able to practice filling a cavity. Den-
tist, Jim Olsen said he hoped to relieve peo-

ple's anxieties about visiting the dentist by
providing them with education.
The Washtenaw County Health Division
offered free cholesterol screening at their
booth.
Sandra Lizarraga, a volunteer at the Cen-
ter for Eating Disorders, which was also rep-
resented at the fair, said, "I think there needs
to be a lot more education about Anorexia;
Bulimia, and healthy eating habits- that's
definitely part of wellness."
Another fair will take place at Eastern
Michigan University tomorrow and will be
centered on minority wellness issues.

When Columbus claimed the world was
round, he wan't taken seriously. Edison
and Bell got the same reaction. So did
the Wright brothers. Yet these visionaries
went on to do what no one else had
ever done.
That kind of innovative thinking is
rewarded at Hughes Network Systems.
One of your ideas could be the next big
breakthorugh in advanced communica-
tions. Or it could be the stepping stone to
another great idea, another innovation.
And Hughes is the place to develop it.
We are recognized worldwide for the
excellence of the data and satellite tele-
communications systems we design,
develop, and manufacture for domestic
and international customers. So bring us
your best ideas along with a sound aca-
demic record in any one of these fields:
Computer Science, Communications
Engineering or Electrical Engineering.
We have outstanding career opportuni-
ties for individuals interested in:
" Real-time microprocessor software
design and development
" Minicomputer database/software
engineering
" Software quality assurance testing
" Networking theory and engineering

What's more, you'll have your choice of
two work locations, both offering life-
styles as exciting as your workstyle. In
our suburban Washington, D.C. office,
you'll be close to the outstanding educa-
tional, historical and cultural attractions
that have made the nation's capital
famous. And you'll be only a short drive
away from the renowned beaches of
Maryland and mountains of Virginia. In
our San Diego office, you'll find yourself
surrounded by the Pacific beauty that
has earned San Diego the reputation as
one of America's most livable cities. And
living on the coast can mean year-round
entertainment. The choice is yours. Two
fantastic locations. One outstanding .
career.
