Dr. Liang—who wrote Dr. Holman’s festschrift in collaboration with Drs. Shoor, Lorig, and Harold Goldberg, MD, professor of medicine at Stanford—notes that Dr. Holman never backs away from socially relevant causes. “He is unbelievable, and you’d never know it just by talking to him,” says Dr. Liang. “He’s essentially a modest person.”
