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.

As a college student she encouraged them to write their first book, Handbook on Abortion, and typed the manuscript.
