Shalala addresses women's health

DEARBORN - More than 300
people.packed the Recreation and
Organization Center at the
University's Dearborn campus Sat-
urday morning to hear Secretary of
Health and Human Services Donna
Shalala speak about the Clinton
administration's upcoming health care
reform .
The Women's Health Issues Fo-
rum, sponsored by the Dearborn cam-
pus, U.S. Reps. William Ford (D-
Ypsilanti), and John Dingell (D-Tren-
ton), was intended to educate about
the changes health care reform will
bring to women's health through a
variety of speakers and workshops.
Shalala, the keynote speaker, was
fresh from an early visit to a medical
clinic in Dearborn, and spoke enthu-
siastically about the increased ben-
efits the Clinton plan will offer to
"With the Clinton plan, there will
not be one American woman without
access to the health care system,"
Shalala said.
Shalala emphasized how univer-
sal coverage will bring several

front in terms of both funding and

Shalala briefly spoke on the sub-
jectof federally-funded abortions. She
said the government would pay for all
pregnancy related services, which
includes abortion.
She also addressed domestic vio-
lence. Noting that 28,000 cases of
domestic violence were reported last
year, she said the Clinton administra-
tion "will be the first administration
to take a national leadership role" on
the subject.
She spoke of the change in the
political atmosphere in Washington.
Shalala pointed out that President
Clinton recently met with leaders of
breast cancer groups to assure them
of inclusion in the health care plan to
describe the importance women's
health on Clinton's agenda.
RC first-year student Ann Magyar
added, "It's about time the govern-
ment focused attention to the other
halfof the population who has its own
unique health needs."

YPSILANTI - Across the street
from an adult video store and down
from an alley where police say drugs
are routinely sold, a candidate for
governor sat in a small cafe "pressing
the flesh," in trying to build grassroots
support from business and local po-
litical leaders one year before the elec-
Rep. Lynn Jondahl (D-Okemos),
a 21-year veteran of the state legisla-
ture and an ordained minister in the
Unitarian church, announced his can-
didacy for governor in June.
Friday, he sat in Louis' Cafe at
205 W. Michigan Ave., gulping cups
of coffee and talking with township
officials about education reform, the
economy and the Republican incum-
bent John Engler.
It is a rite of passage for political
candidates for statewide office. Meet-
ing with local officials months before
the real campaign begins is the tradi-
tional means of garnering supporters
and building a campaign base.
Flanked by one staff member who
also serves as his driver, Jondahl was
introduced by fellow state represen-
tative Kirk Profit of Ypsilanti. Profit
reiterated his support for both Jondahl
and State Sen. Lana Pollack for U.S.
"The battle for governor will be
waged over the 20 percent of the
undecided voters," Profit said. "And
we're going to work like hell to get 11
out of those 20 percent."
But much work must be done long
before the primary, he said. Illustrat-
ing Jondahl's lack of name recogni-
tion, one local official asked him, "Is
it John Dahl?" Jondahl began his
stump speech by mentioning that a
recent Detroit News survey of state
legislators ranked him first.
Twisting the foil lid of a creamer
and speaking in a gravelly voice, he
discussed the importance of educa-
tion reform.
"The governor's proposal is sim-
ply not getting support, not even from
members of his own party," he said.
"In addition, his proposal would lock

Jondahl said a bipartisan proposal

voters will be casting their votes on
the basis of the health of the state's

thousands were thrown out of work

last spring.
"Engler can't run against some-
thing this time," he said. "He has to
run on his record."

dent and a junior in political science
who attended the meeting with
Jondahl, said, "My mind hasn't been
made up, but I like what he's saying
about education."
Jondahl, who opposes the North
American Free Trade Agreement like
almost all otherMichigan Democrats,
spoke positively of the influence of
Ross Perot, who is a leading opponent
of the trade pact.
"Perot helped counter some of the
cynicism of voters and in a sense that
is what I am trying to do," he said.
Jondahl said he plans to attend a
meeting in late November of guber-
natorial candidates at the University'
State Sen. Debbie Stabenow and
former U.S. Rep. Howard Wolpe are
the two principle candidates for the
Democratic nomination.

Briefly outlining the plan, Shalala
listed mammograms, annual gyneco-
logical exams, mental health, and
pregnancy-related services as care that
will be included in the basic health
plan available to all Americans.
"Every female health risk will be
covered either through prevention or
universal coverage," she explained.
Speakers at the conference noted
statistics that point to the need for
attention to women's health care.

Math professor chosen for Packard Fellowship


What are the odds of a 29-year-old
striking it rich in the world of math-
ematics? For Assistant Prof. Trevor
Wooley, it may just be a logical equa-
Wooley was one of 20 winners of
the prestigious Packard Fellowship
last month. The annual grant is
awarded to science and engineering
researchers nationwide to stimulate
overall interest and growth in the field
of technology. Typically only one
mathematician is chosen for the prize
that promotes university research.
"I was kind of surprised,"Wooley
said. "I knew I had been nominated,
but the chances of getting one are
actually pretty slim, especially for
"I consider myself very lucky,"
Wooley said.
Luck, however, probably hadlittle
to do with the decision. Wooley's
research in analytic number theory is
regarded by his colleagues and stu-
dents as challenging and original.
"He is a very impressive young
man with a lot of mathematical
power," said Donald Lewis, chair of
the University mathematics depart-

'I was kind of surprised. I knew I had been
nominated, but the chances of getting one are
... slim, especially for mathematicians.'
sh Trevor Wooley
assistant mathematics professor

"All my research is related to ba-
sic questions concerning integer so-
lutions of equations -questions that
are fundamental to mathematics,"
Wooley explained in a press release.
Wooley said he intends to use the
five-year allotment of $500,000 in
grant money, in three ways.
Additional funds will allow him
to bring visiting mathematicians to
the University for extended periods
of time.
He said he also intends to allocate

money to support graduate students
who are having trouble finding the
time and money to do research of
their own.
"The current job market is pretty
grim," Wooley said, adding that re-
search is "almostan obsession"among
graduate students struggling to pre-
pare themselves for life after college.
Increased funding will allow these
students to spend less time as teach-
ing assistants and more time on their
own projects.
Wooley said he intends to lighten

his own teaching load in order to
further his research. He insisted that
he does want to continue teaching
"I enjoy teaching," he said. "It is
stimulating, and it stimulates re-
This interest in teaching is evident
to his students.
Stefan Treadman, a graduate stun
dent in Wooley's Mathematics 675
this semester, explained, "He is a great
teacher, he's very energetic and very
funny ... he makes me laugh. He's a
very nice man, and not just in the
Wooley received his bachelor's
and master's degrees from the Uni-
versity of Cambridge, Gonville and
Caius College in England and his
doctorate from the University of Lonw
don, Imperial College of Science and
Technology, in 1990. He has been at
the University since 1991.
