Associate Scholar

Marie Willke Meyers, M.D. earned her undergraduate degree from St. Mary’s College and her medical degree from the University of Cincinnati. She then did a residency in internal medicine at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, becoming the first fourth-generation doctor to graduate from the U.C.

After working several years as a hospitalist, she took a leave from medicine to raise four children along with her husband, Robert, later returning to work as an internist. At present she practices cosmetic dermatology.

Her background includes work on President Nixon’s Inaugural Committee and at the White House Press Office during the Nixon and Ford administrations. She was a counsellor at Pregnancy Center West, and served on the boards of Life Issues Institute and currently Cincinnati Right to Life.

As the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J. C.

As a college student she encouraged them to write their first book, Handbook on Abortion, and typed the manuscript. More recently she helped to co-author and publish their last book, Abortion and the Pro-Life Movement.

The Meyers family resides in Cincinnati, Ohio.
