Holloway said he has been involved periodically over the years with CRS and has had a number of patients with special health care needs, so joining the program was a natural fit.

He is a firm believer in the power of the parents to advocate for their children and said he is dedicated to getting positive results in every aspect of a patient’s life.

“I want to try to improve the outcome not only health wise, but psychosocially for kids with special health care needs,” he said.

He will assist in recruiting and retaining specialty physicians for CRS clinics and review new procedures and present recommendations to the CRS director, clinic program specialist, or other members of the state office team.

In addition, he will provide consultative and educational services as requested when issues arise or as needs are presented.
