The What Matters to Me Most and Why lunch and learn series is held once every quarter and it features a different faculty member at each event. The spotlight faculty is asked to talk about whatever matters to them most and why. This could be anything from how they got into dentistry to how they balance their lifestyle on a daily basis. These lunch and learns give UCSF’s dental students an idea of what it’s like to be one of our faculty and a dentist in the real world and how they reached success. This series also gives our dental students a different perspective on our faculty outside of the classroom setting and it allows many students to get to know several of our faculty on a more personal basis.
