Advisory Board


The UIRC Advisory Board is a diverse group of individuals from the community that advise UIRC’s Staff and Board of Directors about reaching and serving Utah's infertility community.


Our Advisory Board members offer a variety of backgrounds including those who are “survivors” of infertility, doctors who specialize in reproductive health, lawyers, adoption experts, mental health workers, nurses, acupuncturists, and other professionals who are passionate about our mission.


If you are interested in joining the Advisory Board please contact Executive Director, Melissa Knoles.
