Ten representatives from the Agricultural and Rural Develop- Inent Committee of the Southern Legislative Conference (SLC) par- ticipated in a panel discussion at the West Virginia School of Os- teopathic Medicine (WVSOM) in Lewisburg, November 12. The committee asked to visit WVSOM to learn about co6pera- tive efforts the school has made on behalf of rural health care de- livery. The committee was inter- ested in WVSOM initiatives that have worked and could be ex- tended to their states. The panel discussion, "Rural Health Care Delivery: Co6pera- tive Approaches," was headed by James Stookey, D.O., dean for academic affairs at WVSOM; Ralph Willard, D.O., associate dean for clinical education; Robert Foster, D.O., assistant clean for clinical education; and Allan Roberts, Ph.D,, WVSOM professor of anatomy and direc- tor of regionalization for the Southern Regional Educational Board. "We are on the cutting edge regarding rural health care deliv- ery. WVSOM has a powerful story to tell. It is important that our sister states know what we are doing in West Virginia," said Doctor Stookey. The SLC was established In 1947 as part of the Council of State Governments to encourage intergovernmental co6peration on a regional basis. SLC-sponsored forums are supported and attended by law- makers from Alabama, Arkan- sas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky., Louisiana, Maryland, Missis- sippi, North Carolina, Okla- homa, Puerto Rico, South Caro- lina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. Doctor Bob Foster told the group, "We train stud~hts to practice primary care in rural communities. We have graduates in many of the slates repre- sented in this conference. They have a number of the same con- cerns regarding rural health care that we have in West Virginia, It will be beneficial to all parties If we can get together to share ideas." The purpose of SLC Is to en- courage southern legislative leaders to work together on re- gional and state solutions to common governmental prob- lems.

"We invest enormous amounts of time and energy into learning how to live, thrive and survive. But how much time does anyone spend learning how to survive a situation that could emotionally and/or physically destroy them? I'm talking about violent crimes against women -- primarily rape," said Don Swift, a second-year student at the West Virginia School of Osteo- pathic Medicine (WVSOM) who conducts free Rape Awareness seminars for the public. Mr Swift, a 6th degree black- belt Karate practitioner, has 22 years of training and teaching experience and is the National Director of the 20,000 member United States Tae Kwon Do Alli- ance. He has taught more than 40 women's Rape Awareness/ Self-defense seminars and has instructed more than 4,000 men. women and children in tae kwon do classes. line seminars, sponsored by the Undergraduate American Academy of Osteopathy, are taught for free as a public serv- ice because women need the ill struetlon and education. "line in sights into the psychology of the crime and how to prevent It and stop it are not taught in the home or schools," Mr Swift said. "l emphasize protection, per sonal knowledge and experience of techniques in the seminars because the reality is that na- tionally less than 5 per cent of rapists are prosecuted." According to Mr' Swift, 353 forcible rapes were reported in West Virginia in 1988 -- 14.3 per cent of total violent crimes. "It may not seem that large a number -- unless you or some- one you know and love was a victim of rape." said Mr Swift. The next seminar will be m December. Seminars are open to students, faculty and staff of WVSOM and area women 13 years of age and over. "We have an open, relaxed atmosphere, but we drive home the state of mind to be In and the defense tactics that work," Mr Swift said. Deeds David Alien Carson and Paula J.
