We are very happy to welcome Anja Bischof, who joins us as a postdoctoral researcher specializing in healthcare equity. Anja recently submitted her Ph.D. thesis at the University of St. Gallen, where her research focused on mitigating low-value care through the adept utilization of patient-reported outcomes and enhancing patients’ health literacy.
Throughout her Ph.D. journey, Anja engaged in impactful projects that explored the nexus of measuring patients’ well-being, identifying influential factors, and formulating strategies to foster effective communication between patients and physicians, all while prioritizing the patients’ self-perceived health status. She completed both her M.A. and B.A. degrees at the University of St. Gallen.
