hi expsi in the field of
menis health carne together on
lnday evening to bring attention to
problem plaguing American
men - the lack of research in
men' s health.
lhe audience of about 60, consist-
mostly of professors and gradu-
students, sat attentively in
ham Auditorium as speakers
sed the difficulties of studying
men's health. The public event
s titled "Future Challenges in
men's Health - Three
iusan Nolen-Hoeksema, an asso-
te Psychology professor who
dies depression in women, said
t research regarding women's
lith is overlooked by mainstream
search (of women's health)
esn't keep up," Nolen-Hoeksema
d. "It either doesn't exist or it's
lly contradictory."
Nolen-Hoeksema said that
iougih it has been established that
men are more prone to being
>ressed than men, the question, no
earch has explained the discrep-
:y. A "desperate need for hard-
e research" is apparent, she said.

Woman abducted
from Med. Center
Suspect captured Monday

Cynthia Myntti, former co-director at the Center on Women and Policy at the
University of Minnesota, spoke on women's health at Rackham Auditorium Monday.

Nolen-Hoeksema recommended
that undergraduate students interest-
ed in health issues get a broad edu-
cation in which they explore more
than one subject area. Because
undergraduate students often specify
their interests early on, women's
health is usually ignored, she said.
"It's too bad that undergrads are
narrowly focused early in their
careers," Nolen-loeksema said.
"Science needs people to be more
broadly based."
Stanford University Health
Research and Policy Prof. Jennifer
Kelsey said the causes and conse-
quences of disease are not the same
for men and women
She stressed the importance of.
doc'umenting and understanding rea-
sons for gender differences and their
relationship to diseases that affect
both sexes, but have only been stud-
ied in men.

Cynthia Myntti, an international
health researcher from the Unisersity
of Minnesota, said that research agen-
das may not serse wsomen's needs
because the right questions are often
missed. Instead, research questions
and answers seem "obs ious."
Myntti said she sees a "i ide-open
future for people who are interested
in women's health." Due to an
increase in funding. women's-heaith
researchers are able to question
often-overlooked topics that are spe-
cific to women, she said.
"Women are one-half oftthe popu-
lation of this town, state, world and
their health affects productivity, eco-
nomic growth, and quality of life,"
Myntti said.
A second women's-health event will
be held tonight in the Michigan League
Ballroom at 7 p.m. The event includes a
keynote address and presentations of
graduate students' research.
