No student arrests for OxyContin

The issue: UK Police say cancer drug not a campus problem

By Nathan Bradley


Despite the high number of illegal ()xy-
Contin users portrayed in the news over the
last couple of months. UK officials say stu-
dents don‘t seem to contribute to the group
of people that is using the powerful and
highly addictive drug unlawfully.

Travis Manley. commander of commu-
nication and information services for the
UK Police Department. says they haven‘t ar-
rested any students in cases relating to the
use of the drug prescribed to cancer. back
pain and bone marrow transplant patients.

OxyContin has recently been reported
as used illegally in several counties in Ken~
tucky. as well as other states in the nation.

Gregory Hall. a detective for the UK
Police Department said he too hasn‘t been
informed of any misuse of the drug by UK

“To my knowledge no students have
been caught using the drug.“ he said.

Though ()xyContin hasn't led the police
to the arrest of any students. Hall said the
police department has had one arrest and
two other cases relating to the drug.

“We find people who are addicted to the
drug that are going around to different doc»
tors and trying to find a different pain re-
liever to relieve their symptoms." he said.
“Basically they are trying to obtain a pre-
scription drug by fraud."

Hall said this is difficult because ()xy»
Contin is not easy to obtain.


Change: UK medical students, faculty
to restructure Salvation Army Clinic

By Toni Knight

Mike Schafer and Dan-
ny Eiferman met each oth-
er when they started their
medical education at UK
and became friends when
they discovered their com-
mon interest to help those
who are less fortunate.

With the help of other
medical students. faculty
and administration, they
have taken on the task of
restructuring the Salva-
tion Army Clinic within
four years.

The College of Medi-
cine sent Schafer and
Eiferman to visit three stu-
dent-run. free clinics at the
University of California
San Diego. The new mis—
sion for the Lexington Sal»
vation Army Clinic was
largely modeled after the
progressive clinics visited

in California.

Schafer and Eiferman
want the clinic to assume a
leadership role in improv-
ing the health and well-be-
ing of the under-served
population in Lexington by
providing free medical ser»
vices. The goal is to also in,
crease awareness of local
health care issues and pro-
vide a place for student
community service and
early clinical exposure.
Now the first- and second
year medical students are
involved in the clinic. in-
stead of only third- and
fourth-year students.

“We didn't want to
wait until we graduated to
help people. We saw all of
the wonderful things going
on at the Salvation Army
Clinic and wanted to build
on what was already a suc-
cess story." Schafer said.

el would give students in prac-

that was previously lacking in
the medical curriculum. They
also stressed what the clinic
could do to meet the needs of
the underprivileged in the
Lexington community.

The School of Public
Health then found out what
the needs of the community
were and wrote the Associa-
tion of American Medical Col-
leges for a grant. The clinic
was awarded a grant of $30,000
over four years this past sum-
mer. which has made the

“It gives us an opportuni-
ty to do what we wanted to do

school w help people," Eifer.
man said.

Eiferman got his first
taste of medicine when he
worked as an emergency
medical technician on an am-
bulance and helped run a
homeless shelter medical
clinic for two years while do-
ing his undergraduate stud-
ies at Chicago's Northwest»
ern University.

The homeless shelter was
in the basement of a church in
a suburb of Chicago.

“It was a great experience
for me because the doctors at
the clinic let me give shots,
observe exams and answered
all my questions." Eiferman

He said that working
there gave him a good idea of
how he wanted to restructure
the Salvation Army Clinic.

Schafer has wanted to be
a physician for as long as he
can remember.

“Based upon a love of the
sciences and a desire to pro-
vide a practical help. as well
as a spiritual help, I decided
upon medicine.“ Schafer

Schafer became an or.
dained Baptist minister in
1994 while he was finishing
his undergraduate studies
and working at Procter and
Gamble. He was the pastor of
a small country church called

Short Creek Baptist in Fal-
mouth, Ky., for about a year.

“After being ordained I
planned to go to seminary."
he said. “However my wife
and I decided that my desire
to share God's love and my
goals of being useful to others
would be better achieved in

Gonsalves said the duo’s
efforts are not self-serving.

“Some people go into
medicine for other reasons
besides a desire to help peo-
ple. but Mike and Danny re-
ally care. They don‘t volun-
teer just to put it on their
records. They don't look
down on people. They're
good communicators."

Schafer views medicine as
more than just an occupation.

“I think medicine is more
than a job. and it takes a
lifestyle commitment. It is a
way of life. and I see it as an
extension of who you are."

He feels that building re-
lationships with people and
being useful to them are at the
core of being a successful

Schafer pointed out.
though. that success can be
defined in many ways.

“By the kindness of oth-
ers. l have learned to View
success as being about more
than personal achievement. I
have learned that success is
about how much we help oth-
ers to succeed and to achieve
their goals," he said.

Eiferman has similar
views on the power and im-
portance of medicine.

“Medicine allows an indi-
vidual to really get to know
people and understand who
they are. A physician has the
ability to significantly impact
a person's life." Eiferman

Concerning the subject of
what it takes to be a good
physician Eiferman said,
“Empathy is the most power—
ful healing tool. and I hope to
improve at it each day with
each new experience.

“I was taught at a young
age that happiness comes
from when you give of your-
self. My success will come in
