Helena Carreira

Having completed a BSc in Nutrition at the University of Porto (Portugal), I started working at the University of Porto Medical School investigating time trends of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and smoking in Portugal. During this time I also completed an MSc in Public Health and worked on diverse studies related to cancer. Following this, in 2013, I joined the LSHTM and worked for three years on the CONCORD programme, quantifying international differences in cancer survival for ten major cancers in adults and leukaemia in children. I am currently pursuing a PhD looking at long-term mental health outcomes and quality of life in women with a history of breast cancer.
