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.

Founded in 1899, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has trained thousands of highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a “whole person” approach to care—treating people, not just symptoms. PCOM offers doctorate degrees in educational psychology, osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy and psychology, and graduate degrees in aging and long-term care administration, biomedical sciences, forensic medicine, mental health counseling, organizational development and leadership, physician assistant studies and school psychology. Our students learn the importance of health promotion, research, education and service to the community. Through its community-based Healthcare Centers, PCOM provides care to medically underserved populations in inner-city and rural locations. For more information, visit pcom.edu.
