National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 – October 15. Given that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted Hispanic/Latinx communities, we must acknowledge the countless lives devastatingly affected from this community due to racism, hatred, and a public health crisis. We would like to take this time to recognize how this country has been made better by their work, dedication, and contributions to the advancement of science and biomedical research. We are honored to have world-renowned Rafael J. Grossmann, MD, FACS as our featured speaker for the Make Shift Happen program.


Join Edie and Dr. Grossmann for a discussion on:

Rafael’s journey from Caracas, Venezuela to being the world's first surgeon to use Google Glass during live surgery.
- His views and findings on innovation and futurism in Healthcare and Exponential Medicine.
- Platforms like EngageVR.io and VictoryXR are changing VRx; becoming the standard in the field; and disrupting medical education.
- Convergence of AI and biotech will revolutionize the entire healthcare system including the way drugs are discovered, how clinical trials are conducted, the methods physicians use to diagnose patients, and how patients are monitored and treated.

Webinar link will be emailed to participants the Friday before - you can also access it from the "Live Stream" tab below. This event is for members-only.
