Marygrace Elson, M.D., to join UI Family Care Center in North Liberty

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Marygrace Elson, M.D., a board-certified specialist in obstetrics and gynecology, will join University of Iowa Family Care Center in North Liberty on July 17.

"Dr. Elson will be a welcome addition to our family care clinic," said Britt Marcussen, M.D., a family medicine specialist with UI Family Care Center. "Her practice will expand our array of specialty care provided to the women in our area."

Elson began her career as a clinical assistant professor in obstetrics and gynecology from 1986-1988 at the University of Wisconsin Medical School. Elson has been in private practice as an obstetrician and gynecologist since 1988, first in Wisconsin, then Chico, Calif., and finally Glen Ellyn, Ill. She graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine and was a resident in obstetrics and gynecology at University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics.

"I provide quality women's health care for women of all ages," Elson said, "and I'm glad I will be able to serve women in North Liberty. It is important to me that a woman understands all of the options available to her to make informed personal choices. My goal is to help women employ preventative measures to maintain their personal health."
