We are delighted to announce that Dr Beverley de Valois, Researcher in Integrative Medicine at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, has been awarded an Honourable Mention for the prestigious 2021-2022 ISCMR (International Society for Traditional, Complementary and Integrative Medicine Research) Scientific Article Prize for her paper 'Acupuncture in the real world: evaluating a 15-year NADA auricular acupuncture service for breast cancer survivors experiencing hot flushes and night sweats as a consequence of adjuvant hormonal therapies'.

The Chair of Research Advisory Committee added: "The competition this year was very strong, so congratulations on presenting such excellent research!"

Beverley also presented her research at the Society of Integrative Oncology conference in Banff Canada in September to 300 eminent oncologists, oncology healthcare professionals, researchers, academics and therapists from 23 countries. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. 

We are thrilled for Beverley and her team and proud to have supported such fantastic research to help patients who have had breast cancer.
