Dr. Jane Balint

John Balint, MD, and his daughter, Jane Balint, MD.

  

 

“I have had the privilege of taking care of children (and now adults, as my patients have grown up) with serious intestinal problems since I was a nurse at Albany Medical Center and took care of two of Dr. Howard’s PN-dependent patients. Now, as a pediatric gastroenterologist, I have a practice focused on those with intestinal failure. It was through Dr. Howard, my father (Dr. John Balint), and the family of one of those first patients that I learned of Oley and the tremendous support and education it provides to both consumers and clinicians. Oley is a unique resource in advancing the care of those in need of enteral and parenteral nutrition support.”

 

Dr. John Balint

“I’ve been in Albany for forty-nine years. Doing GI, I had a fair number of patients who’ve done incredibly well with TPN. I was fortunate to know Dr. Jim Halstead, who knew a great deal about nutrition. He said to me, ‘Would you like to have a division of nutrition attached to the division of GI?’ And that’s how we got Lyn Howard here. The relief of having somebody like Lyn arrive—it meant that I didn’t have to struggle with the parenteral nutrition aspect of my patients’ care.

“I was in at the start of all this [founding of the Oley Foundation]. Lyn and I flew out to San Francisco to pick up a check, which got Oley started. I think what the Oley Foundation does is wonderful, which is why I give you some money from time to time. It’s been wonderful having the Foundation around.”
