Design Museum Mornings with Maggie Baumer, Business Development Manager for Hanger Clinic and local coordinator of our AMPOWER Peer Visitor program.
What does it mean to Humanize Health? Maggie Baumer, a speaker, advocate, and women living with limb loss as a result of a traumatic accident in 2012, helps us answer this question using her personal and professional experience. Now she is working for the same health care programs that changed her life. Maggie will share her journey to her current leadership role which began with survival, moved to recovery and eventually transitioned into a period of renaissance and personal growth. Peer-to-peer mentors, devoted and inquisitive healthcare providers and a supportive community were instrumental to her empowerment.
Maggie Baumer is an attorney licensed to practice in both New York and Massachusetts. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Tufts University in 2004 and her Juris Doctor degree from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 2011. She has served in advocacy positions for several healthcare organizations including the Long Term Care Community Coalition and the Office of the New York State Attorney General (Health Care Bureau) in New York City.
Most recently, she became a member of the Trauma Survivors Network Advisory Board (2014 to present) and the American Trauma Society’s Board of Directors (2016). She currently serves as a Business Development Manager for Hanger Clinic, educating practitioners on the latest prosthetic technology, as well as a Certified Peer Visitor Coordinator for the AMPOWER program, a peer-to-peer network designed to empower and strengthen those affected by amputation or limb difference through peer mentorship, educational resources, and community events.
