Emerging Leaders Board of Akron Children's Hospital

The Emerging Leaders Advisory Board raises awareness and funds for Akron Children’s Hospital through education, events, and volunteerism in the community. The Emerging Leaders board partners with hospital leadership to cultivate the future leaders of our community and advance the hospital’s mission. 


The Emerging Leaders Advisory Board recruits members that are between the ages of 25 and 44, looking for a way to give back to the community and excited about joining a group of their peers to support a worthy cause.
