The 4th Annual Dr. Gary DuGan Memorial 5K/Walk will take place Saturday, September 17, 2022 at the Beaver Meadow Walkway in DuBois. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Graduate Medical Education Program at Penn Highlands DuBois.
Dr. Gary DuGan was the medical director for Penn Highlands Healthcare, a respected doctor, family man and a key supporter, in beginning the first residency program at Penn Highlands DuBois. He was an avid fisherman, a Philadelphia Eagles fan and an avid Penn State Wrestling devotee. Dr. DuGan's best friend in life, was his dog NimZ (whose name represents the initials of his beloved children.)
Since his passing in 2017, the Graduate Medical Education Program at Penn Highlands DuBois has grown, fulfilling Dr. DuGan's vision, to educate and train medical professionals within the healthcare system.
This past June, the Penn Highlands DuBois Family Residency Program graduated its third class of residents. Recently, the program welcomed six new Family Medicine Residents, four additional Psychiatry Residents and for the first time, a Sports Medicine Fellowship. It is an exciting time for the program and we know that Dr. DuGan would be proud of its growth and achievements.
