KALAMAZOO -- William Fenn, a professor in the physician assistant program in Western Michigan University's College of Health and Human Services, is one of four people recently appointed by Gov. John Engler to the Michigan Board of Medicine.

The board is responsible for establishing minimal standards of acceptable practice and assessing penalties when those standards are not met. The board also recommends licensure to schools or individuals once the designated exam created by the board is passed.

Fenn replaces Gregg Haskell, of Houghton, Mich., whose term has expired. Fenn's term runs through Dec. 31, 2006.

Also appointed to the board were Thomas Lindsay of DeWitt, Mich., Gretchen Pretty of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and Tonya Schuitmaker of Lawton, Mich.
