care in emergencies

By Margaret Engoren
Daily Staff Reporter
After educating students on the
importance of emergency medical care,
the second-annual Emergency Medical
Services Week ended yesterday with a
concert to benefit Washtenaw County's
chapter of the American Red Cross. This
week's events, sponsored by the Univer-
sity's Emergency Medical Response
Organization, were a part of the Nation-
al Collegiate Medical Services Week.
"We are a new organization; last year
was our first on campus," said Duna
Raoof, EMRO president and LSA jun-
ior. "We wanted to include as many peo-
ple as possible with our EMS Week
activities to show the community what
we do and to raise awareness about
emergency medicine."
Closing the week's events, local bands
Arizing, DeNovo, Jettared and Tallyhall
played last night in the Michigan
Union's Pendleton Room to benefit the
American Red Cross.
"Its nice to see a concert while sup-
porting the Red Cross, " said LSA fresh-
man Christina Perez.
LSA freshman Nicole Kassab, who
donated $15 to the American Red Cross,
said she came to the concert after seeing
it advertised on a flier. "I wanted to sup-
port EMRO," said Kassab. "And I really

wanted to see Arizing."
Monday's Diag Health Fair, during
which 500 make-your-own First Aid kits
were assembled, kicked off the activities.
"We gave away First Aid kits, (Uni-
versity Health Services) brochures and
provided pamphlets with important
health information and emergency
phone numbers. It was nice to see that
so many people care about others and
want to benefit the community."
EMRO also hosted a Basic Health
Tests Clinic at the Union Monday after-
noon. "Trainers from Bally's (Fitness
Center) helped students to measure
their body mass indexes and blood
pressures," Raoof said. "We discussed
the correlation between these figures
and the risk of obesity and heart dis-
ease. Our focus is emergency medi-
cine, but preventative health care is
just as important."
The group also offered free CPR
training yesterday in the Union.
"We had a really good turnout for the
adult CPR courses," Raoof said. "We
had two courses of 12 people running."
Although the EMS Week's events
were financed by the Michigan Student
Assembly and LSA Student Govern-
ment, members of EMRO raised money
to purchase the First Aid kits.
"Our 120 members are all U of M
undergraduates," Raoof said. "We

STEM CELLS

cells and cancer cells are alike in
many ways."~
The Cancer Center lab that conduct-
ed the study was shielded from the
recent controversy over stem-cell
research, Pardal said. People in the
stem cell field are turning to the use of
adult stem cells from consenting adults
to avoid the ethical dilemma of using
embryonic stem cells, he added.
Central nervous system stem cells
can be found in the brains of adult
subjects, and peripheral nervous sys-
tem stem cells are found in the intes-
tine, Pardal said. Stem cells were
extracted from both these sources in
lab mice for the study.
Medical research is always conducted
in two ways --in vitro and in vivo. The
researchers compared the number of
stem cells in the "knockout" mouse, the
test subject without the Bmi-1 gene, to
the number in a wild type mouse from
the same litter.
Molofsky and Pardal found almost no
stem cells in the mutant mouse, whose
development was retarded and died
within a few months. Pardal said the
lack of Bmi-1 does not kill the stem cells
but rather impairs their ability to self-
replicate.
"People are very excited about
stem cells and being able to use
them in therapy," Molofsky said.
"This is a study that moves in that
direction." So far, stem cells have
not lived up to the hype over their
potential therapeutic uses. "There is
a lot that needs to be learned about
the basic biology of stem cells
before they can be applied to clini-
cal studies."

bought the materials for the First Aid
kits with our membership fees. We hope
to make up the money later with bake
sales and Yost (Ice Arena) clean-ups."
Amanda McMillan, who coordinated
this week's events, said she thought the
program provided important informa-
tion to the campus community.
"This week's events showcased emer-
gency medicine," said Amanda McMil-
lan, LSA and Art and Design senior.

"Most people don't think about what
EMTs do and what really happens in an
ambulance."
EMRO members volunteer as Profes-
sional Rescuers at Michigan hockey,
football and basketball games through
the Red Cross's First Aid Support Team.
Some of the funds raised this week will
be used to support this program.
"We offer First Aid, and CPR if nec-

essary, at home games,"

Raoof said.

important to emphasize our cultures
rather than just our political views,"
said Granader, an LSA junior, as
she looked at the wall.
But Granader said she did not
agree with the display of the protest
wall. "Unfortunately we are often
reactionary on campus instead of
being proactive," Granader said.

riots. In addition, the creation of shopping malls and
department stores in the suburbs gave another reason
for suburbanites not to venture to Detroit.
"Another reason to go downtown was gone,"
Taubman said, mentioning the construction of
the Northland Mall in Southfield in 1954. "Peo-
ple shop where they live."
He also discussed efforts made in the last 25
years to bring life back into the city, including

the building of Riverfront Apartments and the
Renaissance Center.
He said the recently constructed Ford Field
and Comerica Park will bring much-needed
investment back into the city, and that he has
great hope for the city's future.
But Eastern Michigan University junior Jumel
Foster, a Detroit resident, said the riverfront
should not be the only area of investment.
"More money should be put in all areas," Fos-
ter said, noting sections with bad roads and
abandoned buildings.

"I think more needs to be done ... more attrac-
tions (are needed)."
Still, Business School Prof. Larry Hadley said
there are additional efforts being made to subsidize
affordable housing for lower-income residents.
Even though the riverfront has mostly expen-
sive property, investment there will eventually
trickle down, he said.
"A rising tide lifts all boats," Hadley said.
When asked if Taubman owed an apology to
the University for his crimes, Hadley was
adamant to defend him.
