UnityPoint Health – Des Moines Young Advisory Council

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.  

The group was formed to provide an opportunity to engage young professionals within Central Iowa with us to learn more about their perspective as well as foster community outreach and have them serve as brand ambassadors within our community. We have 15 council members from our community and four ex-officio members from our UnityPoint Health team. We look forward to what this group will bring to our organization.
