Dalton Schumacher Board Briefing
Friday, February 25, 2022
When it comes to having experiences with medical treatments and hospitals, Dalton Schumacher and his family have had more than their fair share over the years. It is that journey that led him to join the board of The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Dalton’s wife, his mother, brother, sister, and his late father all have been cancer patients. Dalton, himself developed a mysterious illness back in 2010 and was fortunate to be the recipient of world class treatment at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Because of the care that he and some of his family members, friends and colleagues have received at the hospital and The Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center, Dalton wanted to give back.
“The hospital had done so much for me and others, I wanted to be a fundraiser and contributor,” he says. “I don’t think I’m unique about this, but anytime you get the opportunity to help others, it makes you feel good.”
To lend his support, Dalton sought membership on the Foundation’s board and he now serves on the philanthropy committee as a new member. He says it’s an honor to serve on a board that strives to make our community a healthier place to live and supports the hospital’s collaborative teamwork that results in outstanding patient care.
“It’s such a luxury to have a research hospital of this caliber in our backyard,” he says. “There’s no reason to go anywhere else.”
Dalton, a principal at Edward Jones, is responsible for Branch Team Talent Acquisition and Financial Advisor Career Development, the areas responsible for attracting, sourcing, selecting and onboarding financial advisors and branch office administrators.
