NETWORKWOMEN.COM: COVER STORY, AUGUST 2000

Virginia Maurer, M.DNETWORKWOMEN.COM: COVER STORY, AUGUST 2000VIRGINIA MAURER, M.D.The Maurer Foundation for Breast Health EducationWhen Dr. Virginia E. Maurer started The Maurer Foundation for Breast Health Education five years ago she was filled with a frustration spurred by the lack of facts circulating among women about breast disease."Women were not being given all the information," said Maurer, whose goal is to equip women with everything they need to evaluate their risk and work towards breast cancer prevention.A not-for-profit organization, the Maurer Foundation is dedicated exclusively to educating women of all ages about breast health.The educational programs cover four different areas and bring foundation staff and volunteers into Long Island schools, communities and corporations.The programs give women the best information that is available to help them reduce their risk of breast cancer and learn the best methods of early detection.Maurer is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and The Royal College of Surgeons in Canada and has practiced surgery on Long Island since 1981.While she began as a general surgeon, 13 years ago she limited her practice to diseases and surgery of the breast.Between her Mineola and Commack offices, she sees well over 15,000 patients."It allowed me to focus completely on breast disease in the office and allocate the appropriate amount of time," Maurer said, explaining that 60 percent of her patients already fit into the specialty before she shifted to it entirely.She is on the staff at both Winthrop University Hospital and North Shore University Hospital at Glen Cove.She is a graduate of Queens University School of Medicine in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.Maurer conducts 80 percent of her surgeries at The Day-Op Center of Long Island in Mineola and the balance, which are mastectomies, in the hospital.The doctor, who is the daughter of a physician, knew from a young age that she was interested in the medical field but as a pre-teen she thought she was more geared towards laboratory work.It was at age 15 or 16 that she knew her career would lead her to working with people by practicing medicine.The breast surgeon believes it's very important that people get screened for disease.In fact, Maurer advises patients age 50 and over that they should schedule colonoscopies even though she has nothing to do with that area of medicine."It's so critical," she said.When Maurer advises her daughters, patients and staff, she doesn't tell them what to do then follow another routine for herself."I can't preach something if I don't set an example," she said."It's not what I tell them it's what I do.My kids use my treadmill," said the doctor, who herself runs 20 miles a week, lifts weights and follows a diet plan to maintain good nutrition."We're big on weight reduction," Maurer said.The majority of Maurer's employees are also proactive about their health.Staffmembers in her office are also sensitive to the patients' needs.If someone calls and says they forgot to ask something, for example, staffmembers are very accommodating."Every day is different, every patient is different," she said.It was after Maurer found she was spending a great deal of time speaking and focusing on the educational aspects of breast health that she felt it needed to be separated from her medical practice.The Women's Breast Health Program was first offered as a service to her patients and their families.Five years ago she formed the Foundation and she is in the process of putting together a cross section of experts that will avail themselves to offer assistance in the form of an advisory board."My patients are becoming very involved in the foundation," said Maurer, who takes the care of her patients very seriously "I love the fact that I can spend time with the families and the patients to help them through a very difficult time." The job does get quite stressful."When I'm really getting burnt out something will happen in the office," Maurer said, explaining how she'll see how worthwhile her work is. For example, she recently diagnosed two "very young" women with breast cancer when she did needle biopsies on "very innocent lumps.""I'm so excited about the attendance of that conference," Maurer said.

Camp Wa-Klo Directors & Staff | NH Summer Camp for Girls

campwaklo.com [cached]

Dr. Maurer and Tammy truly understand the personal rewards, such as gaining confidence, independence, and a sense of belonging, of a summer camp experience for girls of all ages.
Dr. Virginia Maurer, MD Ginger Maurer was a camper at Camp Wa-Klo in the 1950's where she was also the camp bugler. Ginger grew up in Rockville Centre, NY and became a surgeon. After many years of general surgery, Dr. Maurer focused her talents in breast cancer surgery, where she is currently a predominant breast cancer surgeon on Long Island, NY. She went back to Wa-Klo in the 90's to check the camp out before sending her two daughters there. Dr. Maurer fell in-love with Camp Wa-Klo all over again. Dr. Maurer believes that Wa-Klo is the ideal setting for girls and young women to challenge themselves, develop individual talents, and strengthen social relationships with others.
