Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield donates a big check to LECOM to support a student scholarship program.
Highmark is presenting a $500,000 check for LECOM students to help with the financial burden of medical school.
The students will receive the money and agree to practice primary care in a rural or underprivileged area.
LECOM students are grateful for the financial assistance and the opportunity to practice at a Highmark facility.
The check will support LECOM students until 2020.
