UnityPoint Health – Des Moines Young Advisory Council

Young Advisory Council Application.

The Young Advisory Council at UnityPoint Health – Des Moines is comprised of enthusiastic young professionals, residents, and UnityPoint Health team members from the Central Iowa area. Members engage with UnityPoint Health – Des Moines Board Members and Senior Leaders to help expand our organization's knowledge and perspective of our community's growing needs.

The group was formed in 2017 to provide an opportunity to engage young professionals within Central Iowa to learn more about their perspective as well as foster community outreach and have them serve as brand ambassadors within our community.

Projections reveal that 20 percent of the Central Iowa population will be between the ages of 20 and 34 by 2019 . As the area attracts more young professionals, UnityPoint Health – Des Moines wants to continue to engage this population in improving the delivery of care to our community.

As modern consumers of health care and early careerists from various industries, the members of this council will serve as ambassadors of UnityPoint Health – Des Moines. This group will also have the opportunity to foster greater community partnerships. In addition to raising community outreach efforts, members may be utilized to participate in the recruitment of young team members. This council will also stimulate age diversity on other boards within UnityPoint Health – Des Moines by acting as a tool for advisory board recruitment.

"We are privileged to have such a fine group of young professionals interested in engaging in the work we do here at UnityPoint Health – Des Moines," said David Stark, president and CEO, UnityPoint Health – Des Moines.
