Dr Dreyer’s background is in health services and outcomes research, with particular expertise in women’s cardiovascular health. In 2009, she graduated with 1st class Honors from the University of Adelaide in South Australia with a Bachelor of Science Degree (Physiology/Psychology). In 2013, she received her Ph.D. in Medicine, also from the University of Adelaide, where she researched the impact of sex and gender disparities in relation to cardiovascular disease. In 2014, Dr Dreyer received the American Australian Association Fellowship to pursue her postdoctoral studies at Yale University.
