CoxHealth doctor named 2021 Humanitarian Award recipient

Posted online

A CoxHealth leader is the recipient of Community Foundation of the Ozarks Inc.'s Humanitarian Award for the second straight year.

Dr. Robin Trotman, an infectious diseases specialist, is this year's award winner, according to a news release. CoxHealth President and CEO Steve Edwards was the recipient last year.

Trotman, who was nominated by Edwards, is being honored for his work during the COVID-19 pandemic. He's supported state and federal response efforts, and was a member of Gov. Mike Parson’s advisory panel to establish policy and prepare for the surge. He also helped prepare a study involving a Springfield Great Clips salon that showed mask wearing was effective in preventing the spread of the virus.

“These efforts did not preclude his other infectious diseases work,” Edwards said in his nomination letter. “He continued to see patients in clinics and took time to mentor medical students training at the Springfield Clinical Campus of the MU School of Medicine.

"Future generations will likely shape the world based on what they have learned and seen from Dr. Trotman, who is always willing to educate and explain in a kind way that people understand.”

A 16-year CoxHealth employee, Trotman is the 36th person to receive the Humanitarian Award over 32 years, according to the release. He's slated to be honored at a Nov. 9 ceremony hosted by CFO and the Association of Fundraising Professionals Ozark Region Chapter.

Trotman will receive a cash award of $5,000, which typically is donated to charity.

The Humanitarian Award selection committee this year was comprised of Rev. Kenneth Chumbley, Tim Connell, Rev. Saehee Duran, Lyle Foster, Brandy Harris and Rev. Phil Snider.

Unless he was telling the truth about this virus and prescribing HCQ and Ivermectin then he is as fraudulent as the rest of them. I would like to know how much money COX recieved for every COVID death and case? Does this Doctor tell his patients this “vaccine” is experimental gene therapy and will not prevent you from getting or transferring the Corona virus? The evidence is mounting that the old people who died were killed by Faucis protocol! You want a humanitarian? Try Dr. Peter McCullough, Tex A&M professor of medicine and the most published heart and kidney doctor in history! Or perhaps the inventor of the mRNA process being used to injure so many unsuspecting Americans, Dr. Robert Malone. How bout, Dr. Zev Zelenko who treated over 7000 high risk patients with only ONE death and I believe 3 hospitalizations! Both Malone and Zelenko have been nominated for Nobel prizes for their work with HCQ. The Springfield medical community failed Springfield miserably and still are with their tyrannical firings. Someone has GOT to start telling the truth!
