Members of Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s Junior Girl Scout Troop #1612 from St. Anne’s School in Garden City were delighted to recently pay a visit Winthrop-University Hospital’s Emergency Department, where they learned first-hand from the Hospital’s doctors and nurses about emergency medicine and the important roles that all staff members play in delivering timely, efficient care to patients of all ages.

The girls, who are on the first of five steps towards earning their first aid junior badge, were led on a tour through the triage area, CT Scan room and the Pediatric Emergency Department by Maura Corvino, RN, MSOL, CEN, Director of Nursing for Winthrop’s Emergency Department, and Valerie Terzano, PhD(c), RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Officer and Senior Vice President for Nursing at Winthrop, who is also a Girl Scouts of Nassau County Board Member at large.

“I am so pleased that the group wanted to come to Winthrop for part of their learning journey,” said Ms. Terzano. “It was truly a rewarding experience for all those who were involved and we hope that many of these young ladies will be inspired to consider a future career in healthcare.”
