Mariam Global Health has worked since 2012 in order to direct global investment and business management in ways that will continue to advance global health through innovative pursuits. Mark Holterman has been the founder and CEO of that organization, and his mind is on high alert for advances in regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies that will help more and more patients. Late last year President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act which has provisions to help with this progress in regenerative medicine along with other funds being designated for things such as the battle in the opioid epidemic. The key advantage gleaned is a more efficient and faster FDA approval for stem cell treatments by including patient input in the process.
Among the many partnerships and memberships that the esteemed Dr. Mark Holterman is a part of is his American Diabetes Association (ADA) affiliation. He is proud to be included as the group works closely with the American Psychological Association (APA) in order to better train mental health professionals so that they can direct their efforts in the best way possible towards diabetic sufferers and their unique psychosocial challenges. There is now a 2 piece continuing education program which has both a 7-hour live section as well as a 5-hour online course component (WeeklyOpinion). Those who complete this education path will be listed on the American Diabetes Association website so that those in need of their help will be able to find them and reach out for assistance free of charge.
A lot of great things will continue to emerge from the state of Illinois in regards to citizen health, and Dr. Holterman is firmly in the mix.
