Meeting the Increasing Demand for Certified Breast Health Educators

Over the past few years, the Maurer Foundation has been fielding an increasing number of calls from across the United States to address the need for qualified breast health educators. Last year, we extended our reach across the pond, with our first international trainee.

What we find especially satisfying are the longterm connections we maintain with organizations, who continue to use us as a training resource for their newly hired staff members. To Life! is one such organization; their mission is to educate women and their families in the greater Capital Region of New York about breast cancer detection, treatments and related health matters, and provide support services to breast cancer patients, caregivers, family and friends.

Melanie McCulley, MS, BCC, is the latest staff member from To Life!, to participate in the the Maurer Foundation’s certification program. Melanie’s passion for women’s health was evident during her two-day training. In her role as Support Service Program Manager, Melanie will use what she learned to support her clients and family members, as she facilitates support groups and manages the education and community health and wellness programs.

The Maurer Foundation offers their training and certification program to individuals and groups. Training dates are flexible, and some modifications can be made, based on the needs of the participants. Click here to learn more about our training process.
