Ida Pedersen Halvorsen

Ida graduated in Public Health from the University of Copenhagen in 2019. During her studies, she developed a particular interest in health inequality, which she focused on in her bachelor project. Subsequently, she published two scientific articles on inequality in cancer rehabilitation. After completing her master's degree, Ida worked as a quality consultant at Herlev and Gentofte Hospital and as a Deputy at the Danish Health Data Authority. On February 1, 2023, Ida started as a PhD student in the Section for Intersectoral Health Services Research.

In her PhD project, Ida will write about cardiac rehabilitation, specifically focusing on inequality in cardiac rehabilitation. Research shows that some people are more likely to be referred to and participate in cardiac rehabilitation than others. Ida wants to examine this issue more closely in her research and try to find solutions. The study itself is a mixed-method study, which will utilize and further develop Ida's toolbox within both quantitative and qualitative methods.
