Introducing the Dutch NAF-Fulbright Fellows

2016-2017

Friday, March 10, 2017 at 6:00 PM

Join us for the annual cocktail reception honoring the 2016-2017 NAF-Fulbright Fellows, the smart, ambitious and energetic Dutch students who won our organization’s most prestigious scholarships. It will be a fun evening and an excellent opportunity to network with the students and other NAF supporters.

Guest Speaker
Margje H. Haverkamp, MD, PhD
Dutch NAF-Fulbright Alumna 2003-2004

Margje (Marthe) H. Haverkamp is a Dutch infectious disease specialist with a PhD in immunology. She holds an MD from Utrecht University and a PhD from Leiden University. As a NAF-Fulbright Fellow to the U.S. (2003-2005) she worked in the Laboratory of Clinical Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health. Her thesis is titled “primary immunodeficiencies, mycobacterial infections, and cytokines”. Upon her return to the Netherlands, Margje founded and chaired the NAF Alumni Committee NL, which continues to bring Dutch and American NAF-Fulbright fellows, alumni and study loan awardees together. While in the Netherlands Margje also worked as a senior policy advisor to the Council for Public Health and Healthcare (RVZ), a government think-tank on healthcare issues. In 2015, the VWS/Harkness fellowship in Health Care, Policy and Practice awarded by the Commonwealth Fund, brought her back to the U.S. to work on reducing overuse in healthcare at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (dept. of Health Policy and Management). She currently lives with her family in New York City, and continues to perform health services research as a research associate for Harvard and a visiting fellow at the Commonwealth Fund.
