Every year, thanks to your support, the St. John Paul the Great Fellowship Program trains post-graduate OB-GYN physicians from around the country in NaProTechnology. Our three outstanding 2015–2016 Fellows are, from left to right:

  • Dr. Melissa Taavola from Hartland, Wisconsin. She enjoys hiking, travel, mission work in Haiti, the University of Wisconsin Badgers, and the Green Bay Packers. “Women deserve the best possible care for their reproductive health by diagnosing and treating the underlying problem.”
  • Dr. Kathleen McGlynn from Tallahassee, Florida. She enjoys running, sports, music, and skies. “I came to the Institute with the hope of expanding my knowledge and skills to be able to take care of women in the best way I possibly can.”
  • Dr. Alexis Simon from Maryville, Missouri. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Don, and two awesome children, Chase and Adalynn. “I am so excited to be spending a year at the NaPro mecca of the world!”
