Giving back to the community is at the core of Nancy L. Mueller, MD. National philanthropic associations and local organizations – such as Christian Health (CHCC) – have all benefitted from the neurologist’s compassionate philosophy.
“I was raised that you should give back when you can,” she explains.
CHCC is humbled to receive ongoing support from Dr. Mueller through monthly contributions and gifts in honor of special occasions, two of numerous stewardship opportunities offered by the CHCC Foundation. Dr. Mueller was introduced to CHCC several years ago when she served on the Bergen County Improvement Authority with Douglas A. Struyk, CPA, LNHA, Christian Health’s President and CEO.
“Doug invited me to tour CHCC’s Wyckoff campus,” says Dr. Mueller, who is also a Clinical Associate Professor in the Neurology Department at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. “I was born and raised in Bergen County, so I was aware of Christian Health, but had never visited. The organization evokes such a sense of community, and the campus is beautiful.”
Shortly thereafter, Dr. Mueller, who still resides in Bergen County, joined the CHCC Courtesy Medical Staff. She treats Heritage Manor Nursing Home residents and Ramapo Ridge Behavioral Health patients.
“Ramapo Ridge is one of the best psychiatric hospitals in the state,” she says.
In addition to supporting non-profits through donations, Dr. Mueller also organizes fundraisers. When her husband passed away four years ago, she created the Kenneth D. Lancin Memorial Event through the AMA Foundation.
“Funds raised provide those in need with access to free medical care,” Dr. Mueller says
When she’s not caring for her patients or teaching, Dr. Mueller enjoys cooking, baking bread, and reading.
“My favorite activity, though, is playing with my two grandchildren,” she says. “They are both very bright and personable. They are just a joy!”
