Coleman appointed to
Mayo Clinic board



President Emerita
attended first
meeting last week
Daily News Editor
Former University Presi-
dent Mary Sue Coleman has
been appointed to a seat on the
Mayo Clinic's Board of Trustees.
According to a release published
on the clinic's website, Cole-
man attended her first quarterly
meeting of the board Friday.
A biochemist by training,
Coleman holds a doctorate in
biochemistry and professor
emeritus appointments in the
University's Medical School
and LSA. She retired as presi-
dent earlier this year after lead-
ing the University for 12 years.
Her successor, University Pres-
ident Mark Schlissel, is a noted

immunologist who also holds
appointments in the Medical
School and LSA.
Coleman also currently
serves on the boards of pharma-
ceutical company Johnson and
Johnson and the Meredith Cor-
poration, an Iowa-based media
conglomerate - positions she
held during her presidency. In
2009, Johnson and Johnson
paid Coleman $229,978 in cash
and stock and the Meredith
Corporation's compensation
totaled $137,167, according to a
2010 New York Times report.
According to Mayo Clinic
spokesperson Karl W. Oest-
reich, Mayo Clinic public trust-
ees are not compensated for
their service, but do receive
reimbursement for expenses
incurred while traveling to and
from quarterly board meetings.
Trustees also receive supple-
mentary medical insurance for
treatment at Mayo Clinic facili-

ties that is not covered by pri-
mary insurance policies.
The non-profit Mayo Clinic's
governing body is a 31-member
board composed of both clinical
physicians and administrators
and public representatives. The
trustees are charged with over-
seeing research, medical edu-
cation and patient care at the
organization's sites in Florida,
Arizona and Minnesota.
Public trustees are selected
by a governance and nominat-
ing committee within the Board
of Trustees.
"Trustees are invited based
upon their experience, exper-
tise, and other priority charac-
teristics identified from time
to time by the Governance &
Nominating Committee," Oest-
reich wrote in a statement.
Previous Mayo Clinic trust-
ees include former First Lady
Barbara Bush, former Vice
President Dick Cheney and
presidential candidate Walter
Mondale. Journalist Tom Bro-
kaw currently serves on the
This year, U.S. News and
World Report ranked the Mayo
Clinic the best hospital in the
country. In 2012, the Mayor
Clinic employed more than
61,000 people, saw 1.165 million
patients and presided over $634
million in research funding.

LSA sophomore Aditi Rao explains her platform at the LSA Student Government Candidates' Forum in Palmer Commons
on Monday.
L SA candidate forum,'
discusses health, safety


Twelve students
are runnning for
10 open seats
Daily Staff Reporter
Students hoping to become
representatives in the LSA
Student Government came-
together in Palmer Commons
on Monday night for the fall
elections' Candidates' Forum.
The forum provides candi-
dates with the opportunity to
discuss their platforms and
answer questions related to
their ideas.
"While students can read
platforms on the actual vot-
ing website, they can look at
people's Facebook pages, they
can see fliers all around," said
LSA-SG President Natasha
Dabrowski, an LSA senior.
"There wasn't as much of a
forum that we could use for
students interested in the elec-
tions to find out more about the
platforms and ask questions'
because once the voting period
starts, students can answer
questions but they can't pro-

mote themselves."
For the past few years, the
forum has been held during
both the fall and winter semes-
ters. During the fall elections
only student representative
seats are open, while in the
winter elections the president
and vice president positions
are also open.
The event was mandatory
for all candidates. Though the
forum was open to all LSA stu-
dents, the event was not highly
"We really do hope that more
and more students will engage
through this event and through
other events with representa-
tives so that they're educated in
their voting," Dabrowski said.
This fall, 12 applicants are
vying for nine representative
spots. Ten out of the 12 appli-
cants are LSA freshmen, which
include Carly Berger, Scar-
lett Ong Rui Chern, Nicholas
Fadanelli, Jeremy Glick, Kath-
ryn Graham, Joseph Hansel,
Madison Kelly, Uriel Lee, Elai-
na Rahrig and Alyson Rich.
The remaining two candidates
are LSA sophomores Aditi Rao
and John Steffes.
Student safety and well-

being was a prominent topic
at the forum. Candidates pro-
posed improving the street
lighting on North Campus as
well as increasing the number
of blue safety lights on campus.
To improve student mental
health, candidates suggested
spreading awareness, about
University resources such as
Counseling and Psychologi-
cal Services and University
Health Services. Some candi-
dates discussed placing heat
lamps, which provide vitamin
D, in residence halls to combat
seasonal depression.
Many of the candidates also
focused on the environment
and sustainability on cam-
pus. The implementation of a
zero-waste program at the Big
House to reduce waste was one
of the initiatives discussed.
The polls for the fall elec-
tion will open at midnight on
Nov. 19 and close at 11:59 p.m.
on Nov. 20. The ballot will also
include three questions at the
end to gauge student opinions
on LSA's Race and Ethnicity
requirement, the accessibility
of research on campus and the
implementation of zero-waste
at the Big House.
