At this free community event in Brisbane, hear from Dr Cherrell Hirst AO as we honour her significant contribution to our community. In recognition of her lifetime commitment to education, women’s health and advocacy and professional leadership, USC will present Dr Hirst with an Honorary Doctorate at this special ceremony.
Health pioneer, business trailblazer, doctor, researcher and international role model, Dr Hirst is an inspiration to many. From 1984 to 2001, Dr Hirst served as director of the Wesley Breast Clinic, and in 1997 she founded the Australasian Society for Breast Disease. In 1994 she became the first female Chancellor appointed to a Queensland university, serving as QUT’s Chancellor from 1994 to 2004, and led QUT’s sponsorship of a new regional university… University of the Sunshine Coast.
