Ida Griesemer, MSPH

Ida Griesemer, MSPH, is a doctoral student in the Department of Health Behavior at UNC Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health. Her research interests are grounded in addressing health disparities in the healthcare system through quality improvement interventions and organizational change. She has contributed to several health services research studies, including interventions to improve pain management among people with osteoarthritis and research investigating the integration of diagnostic genomic sequencing into clinical care. Her dissertation will use quantitative and qualitative methods to examine how the Accountability for Cancer Care through Undoing Racism and Equity (ACCURE) study addressed racial disparities in breast and lung cancer care outcomes by intervening at multiple levels of the care system. When she’s not collaborating on exciting health services research, she enjoys hiking, cooking, and rock climbing.
