WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (May 14, 2024) — Andrew Boldt of Davenport, Iowa, was among 146 students honored in May by Des Moines University Medicine and Health Sciences for volunteering more than fifty hours during the 2023-2024 academic year. Boldt is enrolled in DMU's Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program.

In its seventh year, the DMU Student Awards program recognizes those who commit to representing DMU with integrity and upholding its institutional values of accountability, collaboration, honesty, inclusiveness, and wellness while volunteering, reporting, and reflecting on their experiences.

Located in West Des Moines, part of Iowa's capital metro, Des Moines University offers ten graduate-level professional degree programs in anatomy, biomedical sciences, health-care administration, occupational therapy, osteopathic medicine, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, podiatric medicine, and public health.
