By Vahe Tazian
Daily Staff Reporter
Women, adolescents and children
are currently the groups in the United
States at the greatest risk of being
infected with the HIV virus, accord-
ing to 1995 appropriations hearings
of the U.S. departments of Labor,
Health and Human Services, and Edu-
cation.
This segment of the population
now constitutes 14 percent of all AIDS
cases in the United States.
The Atlanta-based Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention indi-
cates that the rate of women being
infected with HIV is four times faster
than men. The CDC estimates that 20
percent of all AIDS cases are ac-
quired during adolescence.
Gen Stewart, coordinator of HIV
counseling and testing at University
Health Services, said many students
are not concerned about AIDS be-
cause they do not want to face reality.
"Most University students just as-
sume it won't happen to them,"
Stewart said.
Terry Allon, case manager at the
Washtenaw County HIV/AIDS Re-
source Center, also expressed con-
cern toward the student population.
"Students have a sense of immortal-
ity. They feel that this thing can't
touch me," Allon said. "I think it's
become a real problem."
Although UHS reports that, since
the virus's detection in 1981, about 55
percentof AIDS cases nationwide have
been among men who have engaged in
homosexual activity. The new data
prove that heterosexuals are equally at
risk.
The Department of Health and
Human Services in December 1994
released a report concluding that AIDS

AIDS Facts
0 32.4 percent of U.S. adult AIDS cases are linked directly to drug use
50 percent of all AIDS cases are reported by Blacks and Hispanics
19 percent of all reported U.S..AIDS cases are in the 20-29 age group
5,000 people are infected daily with HIV across the world
Every 15 minutes another person contracts HIV worldwide
40 to 100 million people expected to be infected worldwide by the
year 2000

has become the leading killer of males
aged 25-44. For women in the same
age bracket, AIDS has become the
fourth-leading killer. AIDS is now
the sixth-leading cause of death for
people 15-24 years old.
The University began keeping
records of individuals tested for HIV
in 1987, about 75 percent of which
have been students, Stewart said. Since
then, UHS has administered 6, 594
HIV tests. Fifty-two of the tests showed
positive HIV results.
Stewart cautioned that since the test-
ing is anonymous and individuals can
get retested, there may have been fewer
than 52 individuals testing positive.
Although the prevalence of HIV on
campus may be low, according to the
statistics, Stewart advises students, and
anyone who is sexually active, to still

take precautions when engaging in
high-risk sexual activity. She recom-
mends individuals talk to their partner
to find out sexual histories. Also, indi-
viduals should always use a latex
condom, as well as a spermicide for
intercourse, Stewart said.
She noted that individuals who
know they are HIV positive are obli-
gated by federal law to inform their
partners of their status.
Allon has not counseled any uni-
versity students herself, but says many
college-aged individuals have come
into HARC for assistance. "I have
helped plenty of people who are in a
student age group, and who live in
University-subsidized housing, but
are not students," Allon said.
Stewart has noticed a rise in the
number of students being tested.
"More and more students are coming
in and saying, I'm scared, I want to
be tested,"' Stewart said. UHS has no-
ticed an increase in students getting
tested after Greg Louganis' revelation
that he has AIDS. The same trend was
experienced after Earvin "Magic"
Johnson's revelation that he was HIV-
positive.
Stewart added that equal numbers
ofmalesand females get tested atUHS.

ADOPTO

When he first arrived, Robert had a
hard time adjusting to life at the Bortz
Health Care Center in Ypsilanti.
"He would get a little violent with his
walker sometimes. They had to take it
away from him fora while," said Shirley
Duncan, ajunior and therapeutic major at
Eastern Michigan University.
Bortz's "Adopt a Senior" program is
acampaign to bring community involve-
ment into the lives of senior citizens.
"For so long, seniors have been in
the background of society. I believe
that one of the downfalls of today's
society is that we tend to pay little
attention to seniors," said LSA senior
Denise Barnes.
Tricia Freundl, a volunteer co-co-
ordinator, began the program by post-
ing fliers on campus at Eastern, and
also around the Ypsilanti and Ann Ar-
bor communities.
"My focus for the program is to
assign volunteers to those seniors who
don't usually attend the health care
center's functions, those who are bed-
bound and those whodon't have alotof
friends or family who come to visit
them," Freundl said.
Involvement in theprogram requires
participants to visit one or two seniors
for 20 to 30 minutes at least once a
month. During these visits, participants
are able to do a variety of activities with
their adopted seniors.
"Some people play checkers with
theirsenior, some write letters for them,
some read to them and some just talk
the entire time," Freundl said.
Freundl encourages everyone to
become involved with the program and
added that she has had student responses
from both Eastern and the University.
"When I posted the fliers at one of
the dorms at Eastern, an RA there got

JUDITH PERKINS/Daily
Gladys Phayne, one of the residents of the Bortz Health Care Center in
Ypsilanti, sits in the back of the room observing a St. Patrick's Day party.
Phayne is one of the participants in the "Adopt a Senior" program, which
encourages community involvement with seniors.

"Wehave aseminarevery Wednes-
day where we receive a list of names of
seniors to work with. We usually work
with the more active seniors and con-
duct exercise classes," she said.
Denise works alongside five other
University students and feels that they
make a big difference in the lives of the
seniors.

him to learn how to read Braille.
"He had never read Braille before,"
Duncan said. "He told me he had done
enough reading while he could see."
Duncan said one of the greatest
challenges in working with seniors is
keeping their attention.
"We try to organize games that the
seniors will find interesting or fun. Last
week we had a spelling bee, and it was
hard to get them into it," Duncan said,
She said most of the seniors at the
center arealways eager totalk to people.
"Most of the seniors at the centerdo
get visitors, but then there are those
who don't and just sit in there rooms or
in the hallways by themselves each
day. I think one of the characteristics of
a nursing home is the loneliness."
