Helping to Build the NaPro Workforce of the Future

After years of planting seeds, fruit is blossoming. Three area health care professionals have completed their training in  NaProTechnology with Dr. Thomas Hilgers at the Pope Paul VI Institute (PPVI) in Omaha. Mariana Giron was our 2014 St. Gianna Scholarship recipient. As a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Mariana was an advocate for authentic women’s health. She plans to enter Family Medicine and to include NaProTechnology in her future practice. Monique Ruberu MD, a local Ob/Gyn affiliated with Holy Redeemer Health System near Philadelphia, has added NaPro to her practice since returning from Omaha in April. Joanne Castillo MD is a primary care doctor in Allentown, PA. Dr. Robert Motley, one of the FFC Board members, had the pleasure of introducing her to Creighton & NaPro during her residency training. Two other medical students were introduced to NaPro through an academic healthcare collaborative known as  FACTS (the Fertility Appreciation Collaborative to Teach the Systems).
