Iedical School forum looks at
diversity in health care industry

Speakers encourage Medical
dents to face challenges
nd be persistent in working
oward career goals
y Susan T. Port
aily Staff Reporter
In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s
irthday, the University Medical School and
ifice of Admissions hosted an academic
rum yesterday to inform students about the
ortance of diversity in the medical com-
Snity.
The presentation consisted of two keynote
)eakers - Carol Bennett, who did her residen-
r in Ann Arbor, and Keith Black, who is a grad-
tte of the University's Inteflex Program. The
:cond hour was filled with stories told by a
iriety of panelists.
Bennett said there is a need for minorities to

be represented in the student body.
"We all contribute to the fabric of this com-
munity. We all must be represented," Bennett
said. "Both majority and minority citizens pay
taxes to support the public institutions. I want to
see people (like) myself be represented in insti-
tutions of higher education.'
Medical first-year student Kelly McLean said
the more students who are exposed to a diverse
student body, the more effectively they can deal
with real-life situations.
"I have become more aware,' McLean said.
"You first see them as a person opposed to being
African American or Jewish.'
Bennett pointed out that the advocacy and
hard work of minority groups has helped devel-
op progressive research in breast cancer and
prostate cancer.
Black encouraged students not to let chal-
lenges and adversity discourage them from fol-
lowing their goals.

"The fact that nine doors are closed for every
one door that is opened never stopped me,'
Black said. "Be persistent. Be very aggressive
about what you want to do in life."
Medical first-year student Adrienne Moore
said diversity is very important in the
Medical School. Moore said it was encourag-
ing to listen to others who were not discour-
aged by the many challenges they faced as
minorities.
"I am personally trying to increase the num-
ber of students at the Medical School," she said.
Black advised audience members to find a
mentor they can look up to and be "a guiding
spirit" to those students who will follow in their
footsteps.
"I had the chance to have another African
American physician really tell me what it was
like to be an African American faculty mem-
ber at the University of Michigan," Black
said. "It's really a matter of taking your

surgery professor at UCLA, spoke last night at the Medical School at a symposium on diversity.

adversity and turning it into something posi-
tive."
University pathology Prof. Gerald Abrams
said that after 40 years at the University, he
has experienced firsthand the need to
increase minority members within the student
body and faculty.
"The physicians we train are going to deal

with a diverse population,' Abrams said. "The
faculty members have an obligation to meet the
needs of the community."
LSA first-year student Leticia Addai said she
found the forum very informative.
"It's more encouraging to hear people who
have gone through some struggles but have suc-
ceeded," Addai said.
