Catholic Medical Association guild is forming in Champaign
CHAMPAIGN — Catholic medical professionals from throughout the Champaign region are invited to a Mass and meeting at St. Matthew Church, 1303 Lincolnshire Drive, on Saturday, April 25, to begin the formation of a guild of the Catholic Medical Association.
The morning’s activities, which begin with Mass at 9 a.m. , will include a talk on “Stem Cell Therapies in Modern Medicine” by Dr. Mark J. Holterman, professor of surgery and pediatrics at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Peoria. Dr. Holterman is co-founder of the Alliance for Advancement of Cellular Therapies, the chief medical officer of AMARI International, and founder of Marian Global Health, LLLP.
The public is invited, especially physicians, dentists, nurses, advanced practice providers and religious. Light refreshments will be provided.
The Catholic Medical Association is a physician-led community of healthcare professionals that informs, organizes, and inspires its members to uphold the principles of the Catholic faith in the science and practice of medicine. In the Diocese of Peoria there are guilds active in the Peoria, Bloomington-Normal, and Quad Cities regions.
