ontlnued from Page IA
SOLE members said the University
formally presented the new Code with-
out consulting their group beforehand.
"This was published without our
knowledge and our approval," Sexauer
.Said.
Ahmed said during the press confer-
etice that the University made the reso-
lution as a result of SOLE's sit-in.
But University spokesperson Julie
eterson said that although SOLE's
actions put pressure on the University,
"we would have moved in this way any-
way."
Peterson, however, did say SOLE has
had a "a major role in shaping the policy."
One of the issues SOLE said it need-
ed- to resolve was whether the

"They have agreed that they will not go
behind our backs like they did before.5"
- Andy Cornell
LSA junior

University was going to sign on to the
White House-sponsored Apparel
Industry Partnership and Fair Labor
Association code, which many student
and labor activists across the nation
have said is weak.
Administrators promised SOLE that
the University will not sign the AIP-
FLA code, at least for the time being.
Supporters of the AIP-FLA code con-
tend that the issue of sweatshop labor in
the collegiate apparel industry needs to
be tackled in a logical manner, not by
attacking the entire problem all at once.

"I'm looking for some tangible, con-
crete approaches to this problem," said
Michael Posner, University alum and
executive director of the Lawyer's
Committee on Human Rights, a group
supporting the AIP-FLA code.
Seventeen universities, including all of
the Ivy League schools, signed the AIP-
FLA code March 15. Many student
groups on those campuses said they feel
their administrators bypassed them when
their schools signed that code. SOLE
members said feared University adminis-
trators would do the same.

"They have agreed that they will not
go behind our backs like they did before,"
SOLE member Andy Cornell, an LSA
junior, said at the press conference.
SOLE members said the University
code is the strongest in the nation since the
University is committed to implementing
a living wage -a salary that allows work-
ers to maintain local living conditions.
The University's code also outlines
policies on women's rights, calls on
manufacturers to release information
on the ownership and location of facto-
ries and establishes a campus anti-
sweatshop advisory committee com-
posed of students, faculty and staff.
This committee will be investigating
how the University can enforce and
implement these policies.
"I was particularly pleased with the
advisory committee," Posner said

the student body," said MSA Vice
President Sarah Chopp, who is running
for MSA president on the Students'
Party ticket. She added that MSA
should assist students and student
groups in lobbying their state of
Michigan representatives.
Rackham Rep. Jessica Curtin said if
she is elected as the next MSA presi-
dent on the DAAP ticket, such issues,
when brought up by student groups,
will be addressed because "the
University is a leading opinion maker
in the country," Curtin said.
Former MSA Rep. Andy Coulouris,
a Blue Party member who is running
for vice president, said taking stances
on international issues is a "waste of

MSA's time and energy.
"MSA's No. I goal is to tell other
people what the students think, not to
tell students what the students think"
Coulouris said.
Madia said that the issue is made
even more controversial because
during MSA elections, most candi-
dates don't include their stances on
international policy in their plat-
form.
"We're not elected because of views
on foreign policy," Madia said.
Some students said they would prefer
the assembly to focus on campus
issues.
"It depends on what sort of action
(MSA) takes," said Engineering junior
Joe Wyrembelski. "I think there are a
lot of issues around here they need to
focus on."

HEALTH
Continued from Page 1A
communities they hope to serve. Some,
who are working toward their masters'
degrees, said they worry they will be
unable to fully understand communi-
ties' health problems when they begin
work after graduation.
Panel members told the students the
best way to gain understanding is to sub-
merse themselves directly in the commu-
nity. But Tonya Allen, director of the
Warren Conner Development Coalition
in Detroit, emphasized health care work-
ers should be careful not to develop a
condescending attitude toward patients.
"If you think 'oh, these poor people
- let me save them,' that's not going to
float," Allen said. "Most people I know
don't want to be saved."
Reed, a former substance abuse
counselor and Ojibwa and Odawa
Native American tribal member,
echoed Allen's words. She said health
care providers need to realize that
minorities face different health con-
cerns, but that doesn't make their con-
cerns less important.
Another way to achieve cultural
competency is to include minorities in
health care decision making, said
Adnan Hammad, the director of health
and medical services at the Arab
American Community Center for
Economic and Social Services.
He cited small numbers of Arab
Americans and other minorities serving
in hospital administrations, even in
areas with large minority populations.
Public Health student Flora Dallo
said the conference gave her the chance

PRQBLM PRENANC I L
97. ""i 3 57..... aaaisi~~a:
+!+! : {.2 .h ur . :

to talk to active community health
advocates.
"A lot of times, we're here encapu-
lated in school, in our own worlds. It's
good to have people who really know
share with us what's going on in their
communities," Dallo said.
Kenneth Olden, director of the
National Institute of Environmenital
Health Science and of the National
Toxicology Program, spoke in .a
keynote address Saturday about some
of the efforts being made nationally to
improve minority health.
Olden, the first black person to
become director of one of the 18 insti-
tutes of the National Institutes of
Health, explained the importance of
holistic, preventive health care.
"The truth is, there are very few dis-
eases caused only by genetics," Olden
said. "Illness is caused by genetics, the
environment and their interaction with
one another."
Environmental health concerns such
as lead poisoning and cockroach infes-
tation, which has been linked to asthma.
are common among the poor, Olden
said, which makes many minority
groups more vulnerable.
Other workshops at the conference
addressed minority health issues rang-
ing from migrant workers' health to the
United States tobacco industry's effects
on Asia.
Medical student Anita Pandit said
she enjoyed the conference because-it
gave her a chance to learn about issues
not always addressed in medical school.
"I like the fact that they were able to
bring a lot of big-name speakers to
Michigan," she added.
