Des Moines University is preparing tomorrow’s health care professionals and leaders with its outstanding graduate programs in health care. For the past 10 years, the University’s Glanton Minority Scholarship Fund with the generous support of our donors has helped make these programs accessible to minority students, critically needed to meet our nation’s health care challenges. Many Glanton Scholarship donors make their gifts as sponsors of the Glanton Scholarship Dinner. This premier event, which will mark its 10th year in 2013, brings together hundreds of civic and corporate leaders in central Iowa and beyond who support diversity in health care by opening doors for minority students at DMU. Glanton Dinner attendees also celebrate diversity by honoring a select individual who has been a leader in creating opportunities for minorities. The 2013 honoree is Gary Palmer, president and CEO of Prairie Meadows. A lifelong Polk County resident, he has served numerous civic organizations, including the Greater Des Moines Partnership, Junior Achievement of Central Iowa, the Des Moines Civic Center and the Grand View University Board of Trustees. Join us in supporting a diverse health care workforce of DMU graduates!
