These awards all amount to showing Holtermans talent, ability, and love for his patients and work.
How does this benefit us?
The fund does have a concentration in biotechnology which allows it to eliminate some of the risks that are often present in this field. By mixing business people like impact innovators and investors, this allows differing ideas and opinions to be brought into play for one common goal of the Meriam Global Health Fund. This way, smaller scale businesses are able to share their own ideas on how to improve the field and invest with Meriam Global Health and Holterman’s unbelievable experience in the field to benefit everyone (Gazetteday).
How do we know this is a good thing?
With the help of Meriam Global Health, Holterman has devised a way to help International Pediatric specialists get the resources they need to help children in Vietnam. This is why the spread of medial innovation and technology globally is so important, because it can help children in other countries and the entire world on a larger scale.
