Dr. Kathleen Raviele

About the Lecture:
Throughout her life, St. Gianna prepared for her final loving decision: to make the sacrifice of laying down her life for her unborn child. Her remarkable story as a woman, a mother, a wife, and a Catholic physician provides valuable lessons that can be applied to modern medicine. Dr. Raviele will give examples from her own practice of medicine of how living out the Catholic faith in the vocation of medicine brings healing to patients and joy in serving the sick. About the Speaker: Dr. Kathleen M. Raviele is a board-certified, recently retired gynecologist in the Atlanta, Georgia, area. She is a fellow in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a member of the American Association of Pro-Life Ob-Gyns, and she was on the board of the Catholic Medical Association (CMA) in various roles for over ten years, serving as president of the CMA in 2008. She represents the CMA as a consultant for the Pro-Life Secretariat of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. She completed the National Catholic Bioethics Center's course on health care ethics in 2010 and speaks throughout the Archdiocese of Atlanta on marriage and human life topics. She served as the volunteer medical director for the Pregnancy Aid Clinic for ten years and on the board of Post-Abortion Treatment Healing, which assists women and men in recovery from an abortion.
