UHS

THE MAIL

To The Editors of the Crimson:

In the editorial by Amy E. Schwartz in The Crimson (Nov. 6), my remarks are quoted to support a view that UHS has difficulty attracting competent physicians. My intent was the opposite. I contrasted to Ms. Schwartz the recruitment problems facing a small college health service that treats undergraduates only with the very different position of UHS As an accredited hospital and a health maintenance organization serving faculty, employees and their families as well as students, UHS is competitive in attracting highly capable physicians who are interested in treating a diversified, challenging population in a university setting.

My point was a straightforward one. The shift in emphasis created by quoting me in an altered context nearly reversed my meaning such slanted presentation has characterized. The Crimson's handing of the story throughout. I would seriously doubt whether the Harvard community has had an accurate view of the controversy. Margaret S. McKenna, M.D. '70
