There is a staggering shortage of physicians in upstate New York; currently, there is a ratio of 1,500 patients for every one physician. 1500:1. This disparity has contributed significantly to poorer health outcomes for patients in the Southern Tier region because of limited access to quality medical care. To meet the ongoing need of highly trained physicians in the region, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine at Elmira is committed to attracting, educating, and retaining qualified osteopathic physicians to New York. LECOM at Elmira’s presence in Elmira will significantly increase the number of physicians in this area.


To offset the high cost of medical education for student doctors, LECOM holds fundraisers each year for the purpose of providing scholarships to our students. With the help of generous donors, like yourself, we have been able to award more than $40 million in scholarships and have helped thousands of students graduate with manageable debt. 


LECOM at Elmira is excited to host our 1st Annual LECOM at Elmira Casino Night, benefitting the LECOM Student Scholarship Fund, on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at Elmira Country Club in Elmira, New York. This event will feature your favorite casino games, hor d'oeuvres, a high-end silent auction, and much more!


Your donation to the LECOM Student Scholarship Fund will help to enable the future success of the osteopathic medical students and the Southern Tier community. I appreciate your support, and I look forward to seeing you at the tables!


If you have questions, please contact Sara Wheeler, LECOM at Elmira Casino Night Coordinator, at or (607) 442-3500.
