' -,-. 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. . , piiiyare more in 1 1 i 1 1 ' ':. 1 1 : ill' iv 1 1 ... ti ii rr ii 1 1 . . nil .it JUULVV JUL JLJ ilPSW'W'IBHBWIWff 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 providers. "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 said. ,.' 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 liiiiiiil i r, : IT T U 1 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. ales 0 NORTH CAROLINA MUTUAL LIFB INSURANCE COMPANY ; 'jkrrfimiilyhecdsywu. Andlifeinsurance. DURHAM DISTRICT t 601 WILLARD STREET 682-1541 N. C.
