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. Examples of Advisory Board members are “survivors” of infertility, doctors who specialize in reproductive health, 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 Brenda Spearman at
