Experienced and inspired
Drs. Versteeg was trained as a pediatrician and has practiced this profession for more than 3 decades. She worked for several years at the Sint Fransiscus Gasthuis in Rotterdam and brought her broad expertise to the B12 Institute from the establishment at the end of 2016-2017. She has now seen and treated 400 (!) children with a B12 deficiency.
We are happy that Dr Versteeg wants to stay connected to the B12 Institute as head of the Pediatrics department. She will occasionally see a new patient in that capacity. She also likes to train other (pediatric) doctors to adequately diagnose and treat children with a B12 deficiency.
In addition, she also works hard to help shape the B12 Institute Foundation because a lot of work still needs to be done in this particularly field of research.
