As the coronavirus pandemic continues to exhaust a medical workforce already in crisis suffering from shortages and aging physicians, oral surgeons Jesse Falk, DMD, and Michael Moody, DMD are setting their sights on the future of healthcare.

More than 70 aspiring medical students will virtually attend the Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery’s Academic Advantage College & Career Fair event this Saturday, April 18, at 9 a.m. through the GoToWebinar platform.

Although the event was planned to be held in-person, the oral surgeons chose to continue online while practicing social distancing as a way to give back and provide resources to the next generation of students interested in exploring a career in the medical field.

The livestream event will take place at their Summerlin practice. For more information about Canyon Oral, click here.
