WILKES-BARRE – The Community Medical College's new president wouldn't say much about it, but judging from the look on his face, you could tell he was excited about today's press conference.

Dr. Steven Scheinman, new president of TCMC, told The Times Leader on Thursday the press conference at East Stroudsburg University will announce the institution's new partnership to offer a collaborative doctor of medicine and master of public health degree program. ESU President Marcia G. Welsh, Ph.D., and Scheinman will sign an agreement to offer the dual degree program.

The agreement is a result of a $1.5 million federal grant received by TCMC from the Health Resources and Services Administration over five years, with a subcontract for ESU, to provide the funding for enhanced integration of public health and health care through a dual degree program and other health training programs between the two institutions.

"There's excitement on both ends," Scheinman said Thursday. "We're all excited about doing this."

TCMC-ESU Press Conference

When: Today at 1 p.m.

Where: ESU's Innovation Center, 562 Independence Rd., East Stroudsburg.
