The deVeber Institute for Bioethics and Social Research presents “I am with you” a two-night lecture series on supporting women and families through pregnancy and after. Registration is free and easy. Sign up today at www.deveber.org

Night One: Dr. Pritchard and Dr. Zeni on journeying with women through pregnancy.


Dr. Jane Pritchard is a family medicine physician in Toronto. Her practice is comprised of marginally housed or homeless people in Toronto and Latin American refugees from El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Columbia. “My family practice is in an urban setting, but with a very special group of people; who have experienced much trauma, and overcome many obstacles, but the memories are always with them.”


Dr. Deborah Zeni is a family physician in Georgetown, Ontario. She shares a family practice with her husband, Dr. Paul Zeni, and together they provide medical care for all ages—including prenatal care and palliative care. “Currently my practice has an above average number of women who have experienced trauma or considerable hardship.”


In this lecture, two doctors will share their experiences and wisdom caring for pregnant women from varied backgrounds, circumstances and experiences. We will glimpse the work of two individuals guided by their life-affirming values, faith and overwhelming commitment to their patients.


Dr. Zeni explains, “Our patients not only respect, but expect us to uphold our life respecting, equity and diversity centered practice where everyone is a somebody.”
