HEALTH
Continued from Page 1
socio-economic status is an important
factor in determining health quality.
"Race is a socio-economic status,"
Williams said. "So what is driving these
differences is the differences in socio-
economic status of these groups."
Williams said he is concerned about
the high mortality rate of the black
population. "There are about 59,000
excess deaths for the black population,"
Williams said. "That means there's
about 60,000 blacks who die that
wouldn't die if there weren't disparities
in health.
Mental attitudes and the amount of
racism and discrimination a person has
to face also affects health problems,
Williams said.
"Those endorsing negative stereo-
.typeshave more chronic health prob-
lems and higher levels of psychological
distress than those who reject negative
stereotypes," Williams said. "African
Americans who experience racial dis-
crimination have more chronic health
problems."
Williams said Medicare facilities are
often guilty of discrimination.
"Disparities in African Americans
eceiving medical procedures is great;'
Williams said. "African Americans are
less likely to receive them than are
whites.'
He said these disparities continue
despite the fact that the insurance status
i§ the same for both black and white
subjects in these studies. "The four pro-
cedures that African Americans receive
more (than whites) all reflect improper
preventive care" Williams said.
Included in these four procedures
are lower-limb amputations and the
removal of tissue due to ulcers.

PROPOSAL

lie four-year institutions, Engler did not recommend an increase
for community colleges as he has in past years.
Rep. Thomas Mathieu (D-Grand Rapids). Nice chair of the
House Appropriations Committee, said the governor's recom-
mendation for higher education funding - specifically the
community college numbers - will change. "I can guarantee
you that there will need to be some movement on this issue"
Mathieu told Lannoye in response to her presentation.
House Appropriations Chair Morris Hood (D-Detroit said he
agreed with Mathieu, calling the proposal totally inadequate-
Lannoye said the reason for maintaining current community
college funding is to account for the money that schools have
received from faculty retirement savings during the past two
years. The state took over the payment of the retirement funds,

ideas and careers. "They gave me another option of what I could

where students sit this coming season,
the manner in which tickets are allocated
to students will not change.
"We will still give the priority for

Past season ticket-holding studcnts
will have the annual opportunity to rencu

PAUL TALANIAN/Daly
in a speech yesterday, sociology associate Prof. David Williams offered evidence
that race and economic status play a major role in U.S. infant mortality.

Faculty members and a few students
interested in Williams' work attended
yesterday's lecture.
Tony Brown, a Rackham student
who is studying sociology, said he was
impressed with Williams' work and
said that Williams used phenomenal

studies in proving his theories.
"It's a topic that hasn't received sys-
tematic attention?' Brown said. "It's
very powerful work. It's groundbreak-
ing. Class doesn't explain everything
there is about race, and race can't be
reduced to class- both are important:"

said. "Even though I want to be an attorney, I've never thought
of policy. Who knows, maybe I'll be down there shaking hands
with the next National Champion Michigan football team."
Rep. Eileen DeHart (D-Westland) said she brought along
her baby so the child could experience history in the making.
She said the players' accomplishments both on and off the
football field have increased pride in the state. "What they've
done for our state is probably more than what this state
Legislature can do;' DeHart said. "They've brought national
attention to the state and tremendous respect?'
