Dr. Holterman is Professor Emerita in Pediatric Surgery and a surgeon scientist with basic and translational research interests in liver injury at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. The vocation is to advance children's surgical care through clinical excellence, applied research, teaching and mentoring. Her interest in Global Health led her to found two 501(c)3 organizations, IPSAC-VN (International Pediatric Specialist Alliance for Children in Vietnam) and Prometheus USA. IPSAC-VN and Prometheus USA promote the discovery, development and deployment of solutions to improve children's health around the world, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, by fostering and supporting innovative medical education, training, and research, and by narrowing these gaps in under-resourced areas.
Philosophy of care
Patient autonomy is important in my practice. I care about children's health around the world, particularly areas with low resources.
