More than 75 golfers hit the links at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club outside Philadelphia on Sept. 21, for PCOM’s 23rd Annual Golf Classic, Titled Sponsored by Independence Blue Cross.
Participants including Jay S. Feldstein, DO ’81, president and CEO of PCOM; John Kearney, chair of the board; Leonard Finkelstein, DO ’59, chancellor; and Kenneth Veit, DO ’76, MBA, provost, senior vice president for academic affairs and dean, played to raise funds for the College’s five healthcare centers. These community-based centers provide primary care to some 30,000 patients in underserved areas in Philadelphia and rural Pennsylvania. In addition, the centers serve as educational sites for PCOM’s medical and psychology students. Since the event’s inception in 1992, it has raised more than $1.8 million.
Founded in 1899, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has trained over 13,000 highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a “whole person” approach, treating people, not just symptoms. PCOM offers the doctor of osteopathic medicine, doctor of pharmacy and doctor of psychology degrees and graduate programs in mental health counseling, school psychology, physician assistant studies, forensic medicine, organizational development and leadership, and biomedical sciences. Our students learn the importance of health promotion, education and service to the community and, through PCOM’s Healthcare Centers, provide care to the medically underserved populations in inner city and rural locations.
