       DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE CORPS TO SPEAK
               AT OHIO STATE AND AT HEALTH CENTER

     Donald Weaver, an assistant surgeon general in the Public
Health Service and director of the National Health Service Corps,

Service Corps and preventive medicine in American health care.
The National Health Service Corps is a branch of the U.S. Public
Health Service.  It provides health care to inner cities, rural
areas, and other underserved areas of the nation.  Field programs
give medical, nursing, dental, and other health students
professional experience while serving the poor and underserved.

     Earlier on Friday, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., in the conference
room at the ECCO Family Health Center, 1166 E. Main Street,
Weaver will participate in a roundtable session with state,
local, and university experts to discuss health programs for
underserved populations.

     The roundtable discussion is open to the news media; the
talk at Ohio State is free and open to the public.  Weaver's
presentation is sponsored by Ohio State's Department of
Preventive Medicine and the university's Preventive Medicine
Alumni Society.

Preventive Medicine, at (614) 293-3908.
