Honoring Dr. Nik Zervanos
  Jan 22 2021 . Lancaster, PA, USA

For those of us who have  the great fortune of knowing Dr. Zervanos, the goal to honor him would be of no surprise.  His acheivements in the creation of the Lancaster General Family Practice Residency are renown.  In his retirement, he dedicates himself to the history of medicine with particular attention to the Edward Hand Medical Museum (EHMM) soon to be renamed the Lancaster Medical Heritage Museum (LMHM).  

The museum, which was founded by visionaries in the Lancaster Medical Community nearly forty years ago, is one of Lancaster's hidden treasures.  Nik has committed himself to promote its mission, especially by overseeing area-wide college students to conduct research on Lancaster's rich medical history, resulting in both a benefit to the student and the museum's goals. 

Please visit for more information about the work of this non-profit museum. 

The LMHM is moving from Burle Industries to a new, larger, location in downtown Lancaster.  This new location will be far more accessible, but has come with some considerable costs.  One of the  exhibits in the new location will be a reproduction of a general practice office circa early 1900's.  

This GoFundMe campaign is established to assign  naming opportunities for the new general practice exhibit.  What a tremendous opportunity for us to honor Dr. Z by naming the exhibit after him!   And what a great way to thank Dr. Z by supporting a charity that remains so important to him. 

Please share this with anyone you might think loves Dr. Z as we do.   For the LGH residency graduates, consider forming a team for your graduation year.  Friends, family, and faculty are also welcome to create teams in the spirit of friendly competition for this great cause.
