Compassion, caring for your fellow man, one of humanity’s most wonderful traits, yet seemingly more scarce than ever in today’s world. Everyone is so wrapped up in their own affairs and desires that helping others becomes second priority. That being said, there are still those who would extend a helping hand to others caught in a dire situation, a prime example being Dr. Mark Holterman (https://markholterman.wordpress.com/).
CEO of Mariam Global Health, a management and investment firm that collaborates with healthcare companies to address concerns, research and the development of new technologies, Holterman works tirelessly around the clock researching therapies, surgeries and education while subsequently many health-related charities, in particular the International Pediatric Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam or IPSAC-VN, a group working in Vietnam hospitals and medical schools to bring the latest surgical and medical advantages to ill children. This is but one example of the countless number of charitable organizations with equally worthy goals Dr. Holterman strives to support (https://interview.net/dr-mark-holterman/).
Dr. Holterman could be regarded as a “Renaissance Man” working tirelessly as a full professor, entrepreneur, researcher, practicing surgeon and philanthropist. All these monikers are reinforced by his actions and endless compassion. To fill so many roles at once would be absolutely daunting, but Dr. Holterman invests his blood, sweat, and tears into bringing his support to as many people as possible, investing his time as CEO into taking a hands-on approach to research new treatments and curse for common maladies.
However, Dr. Holterman’s greatest foray into the future of medical science would be stem cell research, responsible for some of the most incredible breakthroughs in the field, such as managing to create working organs, such as a synthetic trachea from bone marrow cells, immunosuppression treatments to treat diabetes and thyroids. Cloning organs, the holy grail of medical research, is closer to reality than ever before due to the boggling leaps and bounds Dr. Holterman has made in his personal passion, the fruits of his labor meant to benefit all who require them.
