Medical School Dean William Kelley has recently appointed a Task Force on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. It will address the needs of three populations: enrollees in the University of Pennsylvania Health System, the West Philadelphia community, and the University. I have been asked to chair the subcommittee that will deal with the University and I ask for your help.
I am currently collecting information as to the needs and opportunities for health promotion services and would welcome suggestions from any member of the University community.
Please send them to me at: 3600 Market Street, Room 734/2648; fax: (215) 898-2878; e-mail: email@example.com.
