On behalf of the Culver City Unified School District and the UCLA School of Medicine, I would like to express our appreciation for your paper's coverage of the Culver City School Adolescent Health Center Project. We believe that such clinics will improve the emotional and physical health of teens and will encourage responsible adult behavior through its education and health service programs.
As coordinators of the project, we are very sensitive to the opinions of Culver City teens, parents and teachers. Fundamental to the development of a trusting relationship between community members and the planning group is the free flow of accurate information.
In this regard, I feel obliged to bring to your attention several inaccuracies in Jeff Burbank's article, "Few Objections Raised to Culver Schools Clinic," (Times, Nov. 23).
The article raises the issue of malpractice insurance. No policies regarding malpractice have been determined at this time. The UCLA planning group is working on an operating agreement between UCLA and the Culver City district which will address the issues of liability and malpractice coverage.
