Dr. Mark Holterman: A Comprehensive Approach to the Human Experience

If you were to look up the word “altruistic,” you may well find Dr. Mark Holderman as a synonym. He has devoted his entire life exploring and implementing improved standards of living for all humanity. From infancy to the geriatric population, Dr. Holderman has impressively condensed his message for a happy and healthy life into three simple concepts.



Only a select few academics are able to complete both a Medical Degree (M.D.) as well as a Ph. D. In addition, Dr. Holderman practiced a surgical sub-specialty as a Pediatric Surgeon. Not only did this extend his already extensive training as a physician and surgeon, but he chose to focus on the most vulnerable of patients, sick and injured children. Adding a Ph. D., in addition, allows him to research disease etiologies and develop innovative treatment approaches for not only pediatric patients, but all mankind.


The Miriam Life: Three Simple Concepts

Based in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A, Dr. Holderman has created “The Miriam Life” concept devoted to the basic innate values of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Simply stated in three simple concepts, this effort provides an improved lifestyle for the global community.

1) Research and implementation of biomedical advances. This element of the Miriam Life strives to explore every opportunity to improve current medical understanding and create new, innovate approaches to the practice of medicine.

2) Providing a sustainable and improved standard of living for the majority of the world’s population at and below the poverty level is a fundamental goal. Dr. Holderman believes every human being deserves at a minimum adequate nourishment, clothing and a safe place to live.

3) In order to sustain the basic human requirements, the third pillar of his vision provides education and training to preserve and cultivate financial, physical, and emotional growth.


One of the Good Guys

History has shown that it sometimes takes only one visionary to change the course of history and human experience. History will show that Dr. Mark Holderman is a major humanitarian contributor to a better world.
