Dean, professors
will influence policy
via Institute
of Medicine
Daily StaffReporter
Last week, three University
faculty members were inducted
into the Institute of Medicine,
a health branch of the National
Academy of Sciences that aids
lawmakers and businesses with
health policy by collaborating
with the best of the best in the
medical and research fields.
Oncology Prof. Eric Fearon,
chief of molecular medicine and
genetics; Public Health Prof.
Arline Geronimus and Medical
School Dean Dr. James Woollis-
croft were officially elected to the
IOM, the University of Michigan
Health System announced Mon-
As inductees, they will work on
and presint research with more

than 2,000 members who volun-
teer their time and knowledge
annually for issues that impact
the public. With the addition
of the three faculty members,
UMHS now has 53 faculty who
are past and present members of
the IOM.
Woolliscroft called the recog-
nition an honor, noting that the
induction was a tribute to his
mentors as well.
"Success is built on what peo-
ple are willing to invest in you
over the course of your career," he
said. "Now I see this as an oppor-
tunity to invest myself in others
as people have done for me."
He added that he sees this as
a responsibility of his profession,
and that he enjoys teaching peo-
ple through both academia and
"That's simply how I look at
what-we do in academic medi-
cine," he said. "You take care of
the patient in front ofyou through
your clinical work, and you take
care of the patients of the future
through education and research."

to be generally unaware of the
obstacles Black students face
in applying to law schools, and,
simultaneously, many Black stu-
dents are unfamiliar with the
resources available to them. She
said BULA willbringthat aware-

directly affected and for the rest
of the campus community.
In addition to other resources
and activities, BULA will pro-

and host panel discussions with
relevant speakers.
Ross said the group plans to
reach out to the community in a
broad sense, by welcoming stu-
dents of all backgrounds. She
noted that this year's founders
are actively seeking new mem-
bership, something previous
attempts at bringing BULA back
to campus seemed to lack.

Finance reports
show expensive
race in Ward 2

Data shows a total
of $53K raised in all
city council races
Daily StaffReporter
Candidates' campaign finance
data is in for the most recent
reporting period for the Ann
Arbor City Council elections
with combined funds for all the
candidates reaching upward of
Topping the list was Jane
Lumm (Ward 2-I) with $20,875-
which exceeds the $18,950 pre-
election total Lumm generated in
the 2011 election - raised for this
last filing period, which ended on
Oct. 20. Lumm's funds are about
double that of Kirk Westphal,
Lumm's Democratic challenger
in Ward 2.
Money raised for Ann Arbor
City Council elections through
October 20, 2013.
LSA senior Conrad Brown, a
third Ward 2 candidate, filed a
reporting waiver, which means

he expects to collect less than
$1,000. Brown is an indepen-
dent candidate, running with the
Mixed Use Party.
Sabra Briere (D-Ward 1) will
face-off against new candidate
Jeff Hayner, an independent, for
the Ward 1 seat. Briere collected
$11,800 while Hayner collected
about $2,700.
Hayner said the difference
in funds is likely a disadvantage
for him, but he's still been able
to reach voters and create inter-
est in his campaign. Hayner said
Briere has been able to utilize her
additional resources for mailings,
while he has had to do more work
door-to-door soliciting, which
makes it harder to inform a large
amount of people.
"Instead of using $1,800-
worth of postage, I'm taking a day
and having all the neighbors give
their neighbors a note by hand,"
Hayner said. "I'm running a zero-
balance campaign; I'm not going
to have any debt when I'm done."
He also noted that informing
reaching voters is hard enough
even with mailings, noting the
