Fundraising efforts
likely to coincide
with bicentennial
By JOSEPH LICHTERMAN
Editor in Chief
After raising $3.2 billion
through the Michigan Differ-
ence capital campaign from
2004 to 2008, officials are start-
ing to plan the University's next
major fundraising program.
University President Mary
Sue Coleman, Provost Philip
Hanlon and other officials,
in conjunction with deans of
schools and colleges at the Uni-
versity, are currently in the pro-
cess of establishing campaign
goals that fulfill their vision for
the University as it moves into
its third century.
"We're not ready to launch or
anything like that, but we're in
the planning phase. We're talk-
ing to our deans, we're trying
to identify the needs," Coleman
said in an interview with The
Michigan Daily last month.
Jerry May, the University's
vice president for development,

explained that a capital cam-
paign is essentially "fundrais-
ing on steroids." Tom Baird, the
executive director of the cam-
paign, added that while the Uni-
versity continuously fundraises,
a campaign provides more sus-
tained and nuanced fundraising
efforts.
"Year in and year out, we
raise money, but there's always
needs. What a campaign does
is it really focuses you and revs
everyone up and sustains us
and provides a context to raise
money for more sp'ecific goals,"
Baird said.
The construction of 22 new
campus buildings was financed
by money raised from the
Michigan Difference campaign,
including now-iconic campus
fixtures such as the Ross School
of Business building, the Ford
School of Public Policy's Weill
Hall and the new C.S. Mott
Children's and Von Voigtlander
Women's Hospital.
Also, the Michigan Difference
funded 1,969 new scholarships
and 185 new professorships.
While the University hasn't
released the specific date that

Cancer clinics, infusions,
radiology and phlebotomy ser-
vices are expected to resume

today as parts of the University
of Michigan Health System re-
open after a water line break
forced certain departments in
the Cancer Center to close on
Tuesday.
While cleanup and accommo-
dations were made to minimize
damage within 24 hours of the
leak; the cause of the flooding
has not been determined and
will not be for at least another
week, UMHS spokeswoman

Kara Gavin said.
"Everything is almost back
to normal," Gavin said. "Shar-
ing information and deciding
quickly what to do really helped
get this cleaned up and get
things up and running again."
Gavin said the University
Hospital is well prepared for
unforeseen circumstances that
require relocating patients,
and that decisions on further
displacements will be faculty-

based.
"The respiratory therapists'
area still needs some cleanup,
but that doesn't affect patients
or where they're located,"
Gavin said.
Level B2 of the University's
Comprehensive Cancer Center,
the clinics and infusion areas
are scheduled to open today.

expansion forces
Cafe Habana to

By CECE ZHOU
Daily StaffReporter
The smells of Cuban and Latin
inspired dishes emanating from
restaurant Cafe Habana have
been temporarily tucked away
until the business reopens its
doors at a new location this sum-
mer.
Cafe Habana, which shares an
owner with Blue Tractor BBQ &
Brewery next door, will move to
a new building on Main Street in
an effort to alleviate overcrowd-
ing problems at Blue Tractor. The
restaurants' owners ultimately
came to the decision to expand
Blue Tractor into the space cur-
rently occupied by Caf6 Habana,
and relocate the cafe down the
street.

Eighty percent
of pharmacies
nationwide report
scarcities
By MARY HANNAHAN
Daily Staff Reporter
to recent years, medical
patients have had a difficult
time securing prescription
drugs. Based on the results of
an October University study,
patients in the University
of Michigan Health System
haven't been spared from the
challenge of obtaining medi-
cation.
University researchers
quantified the personnel
resources needed to manage
drug shortages nationally and
defined the impact of drug
scarcities on health systems
across the country. After sur-
veying 353 pharmacy direc-
tors in hospitals across the
country, the study concluded
that the estimated labor costs
associated with managing
drug shortages is about $216
million nationally.

Burgunda Sweet, direc-
tor of drug information and
investigational drug ser-
vices at UMHS and one of
the authors of the study, said
there are additional labor
costs because clinicians have
to search for drugs that are
similar to medication that is
inaccessible to their patients.
While drug shortages have
been prevalent for the past
decade, Sweet said the prob-
lem has continued to worsen,
especially in the past two
years as the number of drugs
in short supply has continued
to grow.
"The numbers have gone
up considerably and the rate
of increase continues to be at
a pretty steep incline," Sweet
said.
The study found that 80
percent of health systems
nationwide reported a short-
age of three specific drugs
- dextrose syringes, epi-
nephrine injection and suc-
cinylcholine injections.
According to the Food and
Drug Administration web-
site, there were shortages
of 178 drugs in 2010, 132 of
