November 9, 2010 – Going Against the Grain

In this program, Drs Phillip and Bruce will tell us how they came to “go against the grain” of their profession and how it affects them, their families and patients.Drs Phillip McNeeley and Bruce Gfeller are half of a four-physician family practice called Holy Family Medical Associates, part of Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center. What is fairly unique about the physicians and staff at Holy Family is their commitment to health care that is fully in compliance with Catholic Church teaching. For over 10 years they have been joyfully serving the Lincoln community by promoting NFP and Natural Procreative Technologies, without dispensing, prescribing, or referring for birth control, sterilization or abortion.
