TORONTO (CP) Dr. Sylvia von Hanna and 14 women paramedics have set .out to revamp the medical profession. They have started by con- verting a house into a clinic which admits only women patients or children. Men are not turned away in case of emergency, Dr. von Hanna said, but it is basically a women's clinic. No white uniforms may be found. Denim is the order of the day. The walls are'covered with feminist announcements and newspaper clippings. Tables are cluttered with handbooks on birth control and VD. The atmosphere is designed to relax patients and not in- timidate them. "I remember my trips to the Dr. von Hanna said. "He'd pat me on the head, say everything is all, right dearie and shove some pills in my hand. "He'd make me feel so in- timidated I wouldn't ask ques- tions." Her helpers agreed. Paramedic Fran Glover said that once women know they have a willing ear they'll ask all the questions that have been bottled up for years. "They just need a little en- couragement." Dr. von Hanna said she is amazed at how little many women know about their bodies. "Sometimes I get depressed when I realize how much has to be done. It took us over an hour to explain to one woman how and why the pill works. I still don't think she understands." She said most women do not realize birth control pills may cause depression and lessen sex drive. Money is the big problem for the clinic. Don't Overlook NOOK Coming Soon!
