Zili Women's Preventative Health Conference 2019

Dear Zili Community,

I’m so happy to connect with you again. We took some much needed time at the beginning of this year to reflect and focus on Zili's greatest strengths and opportunities to humbly serve women like you, those in your families, and those in your community.

With our board of advisors and feedback from our communities, we have understood that Zili will be the platform to provide women of all ages, in very real and actionable ways, the tools of owning our health to lead full, valued, and healthy lives both mentally and physically.

We want to provide tools so that we can be the best versions of ourselves, making strides for gender equity in our society locally, nationally and globally.

We are super excited to announce our 3rd annual Zili Conference on

A few years ago, Dr. Maryam Zeineddin had an idea.

She felt there was a need to address the broad subject of women’s preventative health with a specific plan.

“I felt like I was ‘Band-Aiding’ a lot,” she says of her work as a family physician in West Vancouver. With four other doctors at her clinic and a roster of 5,000 patients, Zeineddin says too many times she has felt rushed and unable to spend the time she would like to spend with her patients...

North Shore Mama – May 3, 2017

What is healthy living? To me, this concept has always been very difficult to define, before we can even begin to follow it. Especially as a woman, with so many roles in life, it seemed impossible to “do it all” while also living a “healthy lifestyle.” I love the saying one of my mentors told me: “You can do it all, but not all at the same time.” This mantra reminds me that I don’t have to be that impossible superwoman figure; but even still, it has not been easy to find balance in life.

Self Care for Superwomen

I’ve found every decade of life so far to be quite a journey of up and downs. My twenties were about change and decision-making, and my only stress outlet was running, playing hockey, skiing and enjoying my relationships.

Dr. Maryam Zeineddin was born in Tehran, Iran and lived in Athens, London, and Stockholm prior to moving to Vancouver.  She attended UBC and completed her B.Sc. in honours physiology.  Her passion for medicine led to volunteering in Honduras with the Canadian Development Agency at a children’s hospital.  This experience became one of the deciding factors for Dr. Zeineddin to become a physician.  During her medical school years at UBC, she took advantage of travelling, volunteering and playing intramural sports such as ice hockey. 

 Together with her friend and classmate Dr. Nicole Barre, she built and currently manages Ambleside Medical Centre (AMC) with fantastic doctors and staff.  Their mission at AMC is to provide the most comprehensive patient-centered care, with preventative health measures as the key element of healthy living.  Dr. Zeineddin has a full practice with interest in all facets of family practice, including preventative health and lifestyle counseling.  She is an avid teacher and clinical instructor for UBC family practice residency programs, has been faculty for the UBC Coastal program, and continues to present and teach to medical students and residents of UBC...
