"People leave more aware of the issues that
impact children today. I hope they leave with hope
for the future as well," Kwak said. "Sometimes
people forget there are children who need sonic
special help, and then those people go away with a
greater understanding of what needs to be done to
help these children."
Alison Gehle, a second-year Medical student, said
she feels the speakers play an important role in inspir-
I hope that people will be inspired to go out and
change things and say, I really liked what this per-
son said and I'm really going to go out and help in
this area,"' Gehle said. "I hope they'll leave here and
change something that will change the life of a
Student organizer Bandana Chadda, a graduate
student in the School of Public Health, said the con-
ference was important because it adds an extra ele-

"In medical school you talk about disease and the
disease process very scientifically. We also need to
be concerned with the other side of it, how it affects
the child and the family," Chadda said.
"This tries to bring in the part that people forget
about in school, and remind them of what kids are
going through these days," he added.
For Social Work graduate student Claire Sebast-
ian, the program was a way to address children who
are being overlooked by society.
"There are a lot of children falling through the
cracks. We're here talking about how to improve
their health and their life," Sebastian said.
Public Health graduate student Susan Marsiglia
said she thought the conference covered a wide
range of issues and brought people closer to chil-
"I think it's important that students and profes-
sionals from different disciplines come together like
this," she said, "because everyone is facing the same
problems. By bringing all these perspectives together
we'll be better able to help."
Medstart was started in 1991 by health science
students who felt there should be more informa-
tion in their curriculum regarding the people
In addition to the conference, Medstart coor-
dinates medical fairs, pairs students with hospi-
tal ized children and pregnant mothers, and
provides communities with health education.

This goes beyond my party and threat-

Nebulon's speech was not recorded
on audio and the cameras were focused
on LSA senior Tom Aronson, the mod-

Allison Quaid, director of the local
Agenda 21 project for the United States,
said there were several reasons Ann
Arbor was chosen over the other appli-
cants. Quaid cited the environmental
record of Ann Arbor, the community-
wide initiatives and the support from the
"It's great to have such a widespread
interest," Quaid said. "They were really
enthusiastic and it is wonderful to work
with a city that is equally as enthusiastic
as we are.
Quaid added that Ann Arbor is an
example of progress since the original
ideas of local sustainability were first
"National, state, and local govern-
ments can contribute to creating a
more sustainable community."
Hieftje said city officials are very
excited about the meetings, and attrib-
utes the choice of Ann Arbor to its
numerous programs and collaborations
with various entities.
"We are very progressive in the
way of environmental programs --
we are energy conscious, and very
pro-active when it comes to finding
alternate fuels," Hleiftje said. "Our
collaboration with the University of
Michigan has also worked greatly. All
these things come together to make us
a shining community."
The meetings will be attended by
city officials from throughout the
country, although the keynote
speaker has not been formally
Ann Arbor officials will also be on
hand for the liscussions, which Konkle
said exemplifies the city's strong com-
mitment to the environment.
"Ann Arbor has been different since
the beginning," Konkle said. "The city
is an example that can go on as time
goes on and others can see the wisdom
of the things we do."
Konkle said the Business school
has donated its facilities for the
meeting and many corporations are
offering to help. He added that Ford
Motor Company promised their new
