Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine hosts annual golf classic

Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine’s (Geisinger Commonwealth) annual golf tournament, held June 12 at Glenmaura National Golf Club in Moosic, grossed more than $100,000. Proceeds will benefit student scholarships. There were 100 golfers entered in the ninth annual event.

PNC Bank was the tournament’s presenting sponsor.

“We are very grateful to everyone who made this golf tournament a success,” said Steven J. Scheinman, MD, Geisinger Commonwealth’s president and dean. “The money raised will help reduce the burden of student debt for our future physicians. Scholarships allow our students more freedom to choose careers in primary care and return to northeastern Pennsylvania to practice.”
