I worked closely with the Wellness Coordinators throughout the internship to provide wellness services to UnityPoint Health employees. Throughout the semester, I assisted with biometric screenings for both employees and the City of Des Moines and created and administered promotional materials for offered wellness services. I also created more than five regional events for the OnPoint for Health program and any other tasks the coordinators gave.


My greatest accomplishment throughout this internship was fostering a strong relationship with the Wellness Coordinators. We collaborated to create materials that will improve the health of many employees at UnityPoint Health.

Learning experience

One of the biggest lessons I learned throughout my experience was the importance of communication. There was always communication regarding scheduling, brainstorming, and promotional materials. This makes organizations run smoothly and creates the best outcome for all individuals involved!

What advice would you give?

My advice is to go above and beyond. Don't just complete the bare minimum tasks you are provided. Ask if there is more you can help with! It doesn't go unnoticed; you will create a strong relationship with your internship supervisor. Represent ISU well!
