GIFT
From page 1
deciding a patient's course of treat-
ment, Stanley said.
"Geographical proximity from
one specialist to another is a matter
of feet," he said. "Instead of making
it specialty centric it's patient cen-
tric."
Stanley said the donor will give
$2.5 million annually for six years as
long as the center is able to show in
a report that it is making progress in
specified areas. The donor is looking
for improvement in patient care and
communication between Univer-
sity specialists and patients' regular
physicians, as well as advancement

in academic research and evidence
of collaboration between medical
fields, Stanley said.
In six years, the donor will evalu-
ate the center's development and
decide whether to bequeath the rest
of the $50 million.
Stanley said health care centers
usually don't follow the center's col-
laborative model because the nature
of the medical field emphasizes rec-
ognizing and awarding individuals.
He said the high level of competi-
tion between medical professionals
makes doctors hesitant to stray from
their areas of expertise by explor-
ing other treatments. The center
confronts that problem by group-
ing together faculty members with
different specialties and awarding

them as a team for their accom-
plishments.
The faculty teams will present
research proposals to the center's
executive committee, which will
allocate funding for the plans
from the $50 million endowment,
Stanley said. He said the research
funded by the endowment will be
more exploratory than other proj-
ects and runs a higher risk of being
fruitless, but could also lead to
breakthroughs in what is known
about cardiovascular disease.
"I think the doctors here are in
medicine out of sincere sympathy
for patients," Stanley said. "Why
we're in medicine at the University
is to try to understand the disease
and prevent the disease."

BENEFITS
From page 1
have the chance to obtain University
health care through marriage so the
new policy doesn't extend to them.
Kiara Vigil, vice president of the
Graduate Employees Organiza-
tion, said the policy is too exclusive
because it excludes heterosexual
pairs.
After the February ruling, GEO's
Solidarity and PoliticalAction Com-
mittee made suggestions for the
new policy to the University Board
of Regents in March, said Colleen
Woods, chair of the committee.
GEO outlined alist ofcriteria that
would extend benefits to an indi-

vidual close to an employee, regard-
less of a pair's relationship status.
Woods said in the future the GEO
hopes to continue working with the
University to develop a more inclu-
sive health care plan.
"It's a step in the right direction
but we'll continue to work," Woods
said. "We will continue to push the
University."
