Christine Roseveare


School of Health Sciences

I have a mix of  public health promotion, applied epidemiology, evaluation and teaching experience.  I was an evaluator and public health advisor at a DHB public health unit, and worked at the Ministry of Health, ESR and the Ministry of Social development before joining the teaching team at Massey. I have enjoyed tutorring on a range of programmes to help health workers develop their programme evaluation and research skills – both in New Zealand and the wider Pacific. My research interests are  the most effective ways of helping people learn, and public health perspectives of human and companion animal interaction.
