Nearly $66,000 was raised by the Harlem community to fund scholarships for underrepresented minorities to attend Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine at the school’s second official “parlor” meeting, hosted recently by attorneys John Lynch and Sylvia Khatcherian at their home on West 116th Street in Harlem.

The donations bring the total proceeds raised for the TouroCOM Fund for Underrepresented Minority Students to approximately $160,000.

“These events give the medical school a chance to introduce our student leaders to Harlem,” said TouroCOM’s Executive Dean Robert Goldberg, DO. “Their stories and life experiences point to the need for generous support for such dedicated people in order to meet the needs of underserved medical communities.”
