Aequitas Partners has launched The Health Talent Exchange, a marketplace where companies still growing can post jobs and job seekers can find them. COVID-19 has tragically upended the lives of so many people, particularly regarding employment, so we applaud Tim Gordon and his team for putting together this important resource.

Dr. Craig Smith, Surgeon-in-Chief at Columbia University Irving Medical Center has been doing daily COVID-19 updates, in which he tells it like it is, in a way that is genuine, empathetic, pragmatic, and often quite funny. For those on the business side – this shows why it’s so crucial to have great physician leadership to complement what we do. It’s not one or the other, we have to work together if anything is going to change.
