Dr. DuGan is remembered for his many contributions at Penn Highlands Healthcare, in particular as an integral figure in developing the health system’s Graduate Medical Education (GME) program, to which all proceeds from the race will go. The Penn Highlands GME program offers medical students and recent medical school graduates opportunities for rotations and one-on-one time with attending physicians, helping to equip family medicine residents with the inpatient and outpatient training they need to prepare to meet the demands of rural health care
