CHAPEL HILL Consumers
hold a majority of board-of-director
positions in federally funded neighbor
hood health centers. ' -,-.
But how representative and influ
ential are they when policy decisions
on health care are made? '
Jean - Latting Jones, a public
health graduate student, at the Uni
versity of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill, has received a $44,000, one - year
Sant from the National Center . for
ealth Sciences Research to study this
question. She will be looking at con
sumer representation on . boards ; of
neighborhood health centers (NHC). :
' In her-study, "titled "Consumer
Representation: Attaining Influence,"
Mrs. Jones will be analyzing how the
boards of 15 NHC's are organized to
' either help or discourage consumer in
put. She also will be finding out what
methods consumers can and do - use to
make themselves heard. .

Mrs. Jones has not yet decided
whether she will study health centers in
the Northeast or Southeast ' , -V;
Her findings, she said, will help
NHC's set up governing boards that are
... open to consumer participation. It also
"will inform consumers on what steps
they can take to become influential.
- ; NHC's, said Mrs. Jones, a doctoral '
' candidate in the School of Public Health
department of health administration, '
are an outgrowth of President Johnson's
War on Poverty. They originally were ,
designed to provide health care to only
low income persons, but they now
reach out to persons of. all income
groups. Jones said there are three neigh
borhood" health centers in North Caro
lina: Durham's Lincoln Community
Health. Center, the Orange-Chatham
Comprehensive Community Health Cen
ter in Carrboro and Healthco in Soul
City." ., ";.,:.:.,;!: " v10
A main thrust of the NHC plan,
she said, is to have consumers, people ,
w,ho are actually patients at the center,
participate in policy making and the
planning 1 of services, "When' HEW
took over the program it continued
Johnson's mandate that:a majority of.
professional jargon used by the health
"Consumer representatives,'' Mrs.
Jones explained, "do understand the
. issues as they affect their community,
. family and friends. But when it comes
to making a decision, ' for example,
between two x-ray machines, where one
may be more expensive but also more
suitable to the clinic's needs, they don't
have technical knowledge providers have
to make the distinction and decide:
between the two." . .
A board that takes the time to
explain the technical side of , such de
cisions she said, is showing its concern
for active consumers participation.
What has happened in many cases,
she' said, is that consumer representa
tives are not prepared to discuss techni
cal healUi issues. They don't have the
medical knowledge or understand the
board positions be held by consumers
for this reason," Jones said.
"But the '$ problem often has
been that consumers either directly or
indirectly are shut out of the
decision making process,". Mrs." Jones
Information Mrs. Jones hopes to
gather through questionaires and per
sonal interviews include; what the NHC
chief executives' attitude toward con
sumer participation in center policy is;
whether public hearings are held - to
obtain consumer opinion arid to ex
plain j in lay language, health issues and
policies; whether board , meetings are
open to all interested consumers or just
consumer representatives; and how are
MRS. JEAN L. JONES
consumer board members selected.
Mrs. Jones said she also wants to
discover what channels consumers use
. to gain power on the board ; and
how consumers use health providers
or social service professionals who are
considered consumer advocates.. The
UNC-CH graduate student will be look
ing at' consumer use of militancy, how
well it works and what type of board or
ganization works best with militant con
sumer groups. .
Dr. William Freeman Leaves Wake School; Takes No. 2 Post
Nothing can mean more Jto your family than the little
things you give them every day.
A smile, a hug, a game of ball, or a simple walk in a
park are things your family needs to feel happy and secure.
But there's something else you give your family
that matters a lot An income; WitH it, you pay for a good
place to live. Clothing. New bicycles. Dentist bills. A
vacation. A car. ;
And you use your irtcome to save for things in
the future, like college for your children or a new home.
; If something happened to you, all these things
could be gone. Unless you have life insurance. That's why
you should call your North Carolina Mutual agent .
Give your family love. But also give them protection.
