The Show is hearing from Arizonans affected in different ways by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Show spoke with two people who are entering the medical field, just as this pandemic changes everything.

Joseph Brinkman is about to graduate from Creighton University’s medicine program in Phoenix and begin a residency at the Mayo Clinic.

Shannon Wheeler chose to graduate early from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Phoenix to aid in the pandemic.

The timing of this moment in their lives is not lost on either of them.
