Dr. Christine Tisone serves as the faculty advisor to the student organization “Global
Health Outreach” and is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Health Division of the
Health & Kinesiology Department at Texas A&M University.


Her training includes a B.S. in Biology, Masters of Public Health, and Doctor of
Philosophy degree in Physical Anthropology from Indiana University, Bloomington.
Her research areas include global health, nutrition security, human growth &
development, growth monitoring and nutrition status assessment in field settings,
community nutrition, and dementia and memory care.


Her passion is in teaching, and in finding ways in which to take her students out of
the confines of a classroom and into field settings. To that end, she has established
a long-term sustainable service learning project in Texas dedicated to memory care
for individuals with dementia, which has allowed her students to experience real
world situations while providing regular memory care to dementia patients.


In addition to her domestic endeavors, she has more than 20 years of international
experience conducting research, teaching, and directing international service
learning and study abroad programs in Latin America. More recently, she also
provided short-term technical assistance in the form of nutrition consulting services
to the USAID AVANSA Agrikultura Project in East Timor, SE Asia.
