Dr. Mark Holterman – A Man With An Important Goal

While there are several heroic professions, few areas directly connected to saving the lives of others as a doctor. Having such direct control over the health of others is an enormous responsibility for anyone to take on. Despite this, some doctors take this opportunity to influence and embrace it full-heartedly. The results are great advancements and progress for humanity. Dr. Mark Holterman is a great example of this, and his many accomplishments highlight why.

 

Holterman doesn’t shy away from a schedule full of hard work. Outside of his pediatric work, Holterman also tirelessly researches and educates. He is currently a professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, where he teaches the knowledge that he learned studying biology at Yale. While his area of expertise is pediatric science, he has also dedicated hours of effort to philanthropy. He contributes to a number of charities, one of which is IPSAC-VN (International Pediatric Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam).

 

Holterman continues to make strong efforts in supporting IPSAC_VN. The organization is centered in Vietnam and helps medical schools and hospitals provide better care to suffering children (Crunchbase). This noble cause has been successful up to this point but continues to need help as it grows in size and influence. At IPSAC_VN, Holterman and many others have helped bring Vietnam’s medical care to a more advanced level – one capable of producing complex procedures such as tumor removal and organ transplants.

 

Because of ISSAC-VN’s need for help, volunteers are always welcome. By simply having a passport and medical license, volunteers can travel to Vietnam and help the effort. The work of Holterman plays a significant role in Vietnam’s growing ability to provide adequate healthcare to its ailing children. The medical blessings of the first world are sometimes taken for granted, but thankfully, people like Dr. Holterman realize the struggle that many parts of the world face. His continued work to reconcile the incredible differences between different countries’ levels of pediatric care is commendable, and those interested should follow his work as an example or inspiration.
