    Research interests

    My research lies within medical anthropology and cross-disciplinary health studies, with a particular focus on health inequities, overdiagnosis, overshadowing (underdiagnosis), medicalization, health institutions and patient experiences.

NCGP (Stavanger) 2022, WONCA Europe (Brussels) June 2023, EuroPrev (Porto) April 2023, KL sundhedspolitiske konference (Odense) april 2023.
