Welcome to the ODDS working team
Josefine is a Preparatory research school scholar funded by the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University and has just completed her first year of the Master’s programme in public health. The preparatory research school enable students to work with an individual research project in a research setting for two months during the summer.
Josefine will use data from the ODDS study to investigate time trends and factors associated with overweight and obesity in participants aged 17 and above. The aim is to elucidate time trends on mean BMI and prevalence of overweight and obesity between the years 1967-2020 and its association with sociodemographic and behavioral characteristics, as well as anthropometric measurements such as waist circumference.
