Sharing means caring

Des Moines University: SHAREIt is now easier than ever to share your good news with the DMU community. With the newly created ‘share’ page on the DMU website, you can submit all sorts of information. Here are the types of news we hope you will submit:

  • Alumni class notes: Tell us about your practice, recent appointments, residencies, fellowships, awards, and other significant personal and professional news.
  • Blog post or opinion: Have something to get off your chest? You can write about anything even remotely DMU related and we just might put it online. Or do you want to share your perspectives on something going on in your field? Is there a current medical trend or fad you want to discuss? Do it here! All posts show up on the Dose of DMU and could even be shared on the DMU homepage.
  • DMU news or update: There’s a lot going on at DMU. If there is something going on with a DMU department or employee that you think people need to know then submit it!
  • Photos: Have a DMU related photo you want to share? Upload it and we might share it on Facebook or other social media sites.
