Professor Dame Valerie Beral is Britain's most celebrated epidemiologist, currently serving as Head of the Cancer Epidemiology Unit at Oxford University and Principle Investigator for the Million Woman Study - famously studying links between Hormone Replacement Therapy and breast cancer. Professor Beral was appointed Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) and Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in 2010 for her contributions to science. As a graduate of the Sydney Medical School ('69) Professor Beral returns to The University of Sydney to offer an optimistic view on the state of Australian Health - "Dame Valerie and the Evidence: Challenging Popular Myths of Australian Health in Crisis".
