DMC Attorney Maziarz 2017 Awardee of Distinction

Rebecca J. Maziarz, shareholder of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C., was honored by the University of Pittsburgh Varsity Letter Club (VLC) as a 2017 Awardee of Distinction the weekend of October 13 & 14, 2017. The celebration of this accomplishment included recognition during the Pitt vs. NC State football game at Heinz Field.

The award, known as the University of Pittsburgh’s Athletic Hall of Fame, recognizes former varsity letter winners for their community, professional, and athletic achievements. Ms. Maziarz is a four-year letter winner in women’s basketball, having helped the Panthers to the Big East regular season championship while she was a junior.

After graduating in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science degree in health information management, Ms. Maziarz was the Director of Medical Information Management at several regional hospitals for 16 years. She received her Juris Doctor from Duquesne School of Law in 2001 where she was a member of the Appellate Moot Court Honor Society.

Ms. Maziarz’s community involvement includes nine years as a volunteer for HEARTH. She was drawn to the cause of HEARTH — helping women become self-sufficient. “Being a woman with a supportive family and rewarding job, I want to be able to give that experience to those who are in need,” says Maziarz. Her commitment to HEARTH’s mission found her serving on the Board of Directors for several years.

Ms. Maziarz focuses her practice in the area of health care law with a particular emphasis in medical malpractice litigation and negligence litigation. She serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences teaching Health Care Law.
