A new award for a graduating senior will be presented for the first time at this year’s honors convocation. The Mark Koshar, M.D. ’70 Award will benefit a student who has committed to a career in the health professions, with preference to those with a demonstrated interest in advancing global health and/or primary care.
The award is named in honor of Dr. Mark I. Koshar ’70, who has practiced in Easton for more than 40 years. June Schlueter, Charles A. Dana Professor Emerita of English and former provost, and Paul Schlueter created an endowment to support the award. The deed of gift pays tribute to Koshar “whose devotion to the medical profession and to his many Lafayette College and Easton patients has been exemplary.”
Koshar, a biology graduate, earned his M.D. from UMDNJ New Jersey Medical School at Newark.
