Dr Cherrell Hirst Honorary Award
Health pioneer, business trailblazer, doctor, researcher and international role model, Dr Cherrell Hirst AO is an inspiration to many. 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 a special ceremony.
At this free community event, Dr Hirst will deliver a special public lecture and will be joined “in conversation” with Australian author Mary-Rose MacColl to discuss Dr Hirst’s career, achievements and lessons learned.
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.
Dr Hirst currently serves on a number of corporate and charity boards and has been awarded the 1995 Queenslander of the Year, the Order of Australia medal, the Australian Government Centenary Medal and the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ Gold Medal.
