Greefield proposes new
Cardiovascular Center

By Megan Hayes

1)aily Sta~ff Reporer s

Citing the need to create more syn-
ergy and collaboration between
researchers and physicians working
with cardiovascular disease, Interim
Executive Vice President for Medical
Affairs Lazar Greenfield laid out
plans yesterday at the Board of
Regents meeting for a new cardio-
vascular center.
The proposed center would be
built next to University Hospital
and C.S. Mott's Children's Hospital
in two phases, with a clinical care
facility built in the first phase and a
research facility in the second
The two facilities would allow
individuals who are normally spread
throughout the Medical Campus to
be housed in the same building,
which Greenfield said would
increase the quality of care patients
Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1
cause of death in the United States,
killing 2,600 individuals every day,
Greenfield said.
"We recognize that the future of
University cardiovascular care is to
provide well-integrated, comprehen-
sive care to patients and their fami-
lies," he said. "We are interested in
improving the way we create new
knowledge through research."
The regents approved the architec-
tural phase of the project by agreeing

"We recognize that the future of
cardiovascular care is to provide well-
integrated, comprehensive care to
patients and their families,

to hire the firm Shepley Bulfinch
Richardson and Abbott to help
design the center.
The center's creation was approved
by the regents in September 2000.
The current design is for a
343,850-square-foot building with a
400-space parking deck. The project-
ed cost is $196 million, which
includes the clinical facility, needed
demolitions and roadway improve-
Greenfield said the project will
hopefully be completed in 2006.
President Mary Sue Coleman cau-
tioned Greenfield and others
involved in the project that spending
for the center would be carefully
"I can assure you we will be ask-
ing very hard questions about the
budget. We will be realistic about
what we want to do," she said.
Though the budget was a concern
at the meeting, interim Vice Presi-
dent for Development Cynthia
Wilbanks reported that gifts to the

University, while down from last
year, are still well above those
received on average in the 1990s.
Last year's gifts totaled approxi-
mately $225 million and gifts this
year totaled $168 million. An aver-
age of $118 million was raised each
year in the 1990s.
Wilbanks also said the number of
donors giving to the University rose
slightly this year, to 107,313. In
1979, that number totaled 37,582.
"That is good progress and we
hope to build on that for the future"
she said.
Wilbanks also announced that the
University is the seventh-leading
public institution in terms of
fundraising in the nation, behind
Indiana University and the Universi-
ty of Wisconsin, among oth6rs.
The University also receives the
most contributions from alumni than
any other public institution in the
country, she said.
"But we always have more work to
do," she added.

"I don't hear about a lot of people
doing it on this campus. I definitely
know more people who do a lot of other
drugs," RC sophomore James Scott
Duthie said. "There's been a few times
when it's been offered to me at parties
but I don't know of anyone who does it
But an LSA sophomore and former
cocaine addict said he knows a lot of stu-
dents who use the drug occasionally. The
student, who requested to remain anony-
mous, recently admitted himself into off-
campus rehabilitation for drug use.
"I didn't like the people I was hanging
out with, they were all users, and I really
realized that I wasn't happy most of the
He said students who use cocaine
usually fall into two groups - those
who occasionally use it at parties and
those who use it as a study aid.
"They'll do it when they're a little
stressed," he said. "When you're

fatigued, you can forget that you're tired.
It gives you a little push."
He also said the drug is fairly easy to
obtain on campus.
"There's a very large drug community
in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti," he said,
adding that there are certain areas where
students can go to purchase cocaine and
some students bring supplies from their
home communities.
"There's a lot of people who, as a
side job, use their connections from
back home."
He sought help at the University's
Counseling and Psychological Services
but said he would not recommend it to
other addicts.
"They're really good with alcoholism.
They don't have the resources for major
drug addiction."
Patrice Flax, the Alcohol and Other
Drugs Campus Initiatives Coordinator at
University Health Services, said her
office mostly focuses on student alcohol
"So many of the problems that stu-
dents struggle with are related to alco-

hol," Flax said.
She said there are resources available
such as informational pamphlets for stu-
dents who are struggling with cocaine
addiction. They often refer students
seeking help to Counseling and Psycho-
logical Services.
But Flax said the University has no
initiatives underway to combat cocaine
use, although they would consider doing
it in the future if officials notice any
sudden changes in student usage.
"We're always monitoring the student
survey information," she said.
Sean McCabe, an assistant research
scientist at the University Substance
Abuse Research Center, said the preva-
lence of cocaine use at the University
is lower than the national average of
4.7 percent for college students
according to Monitoring the Future, a
study conducted by the National Insti-
tute on Drug Abuse.
"The prevalence of several other
drugs among University undergraduates
are also lower than national averages,"
McCabe said.

Despite the increase in the number of performances,
English Prof. Ralph Williams, who teaches English
367, a Shakespeare course, said, "tickets are already on
sale and they are likely to be going fast."
In addition, the University is holding seminars and
lectures that discuss related topics when the RSC is on
campus in March.
"In short, it is not a performance alone, it's also a
major education initiative," Williams said.
Williams said the revisit of the RSC, which he
describes as "the premier classical theatre in the Eng-
lish-spea ing world," is important to the University
because ii brings one of the finest presentations in the
world to the campus and the community.
"Many students still speak with me about those pro-

ductions," said Williams, who encourages all of his stu-
dents to see the plays.
Rackham student Robert Gressis, who paid $168 to
see the four plays by the RSC in 2001 said, "The
money was worth it. ... The plays and the selection
were really good." He added he is going to buy the
ticket to see the RSC again in March.
"I have heard of them. ... They are the best among
those doing Shakespeare's plays," LSA freshman
Danielle Ibrahim said, who was not on campus during
the first visit of the RSC.
Fischer, who helped to make the RSC's return possi-
ble, said "with the great support of the University, the
UMS was able to get a five-year partnership with the
According to the partnership, the RSC will perform
on campus three times within five years and after this
upcoming visit, will return to Ann Arbor again in 2005.

Kelly said she was skeptical that the Bush administration
wants to democratize Iraq through war, recalling the support
that the United States gave the regime in the '80s.
"The U.S. helped (Iraq) use chemical weapons to get Iran.
They were not worried then," Kelly said. "I don't think they
want regime change. I think they want change in leadership."
She also said the Bush administration wants to ameliorate
the nation's recession through conflict, adding that although
the horror of Sept. 11 demands action from the United States,
the government must remember the conditions of people in

less fortunate countries before it acts.
"It seemed to me the best people who could understand the
loss, agony and grief are the people of Iraq," she said.
Many students left the event impressed with Kelly's speech.
"Her point of view is refreshing," LSA sophomore Peter
Woiwode said. "It reinstates feelings that were faded because
of the media playing the war up as necessary. It brought it back
to my mind that it was wrong."
Engineering sophomore Mike Albertus said, "I think that
everyone in the United States has interest in foreign policy and
how we can affect so greatly something that's going on across
the globe. A lot of people don't realize how our policy affects
so many others."
