Frances Rouse

Frances Rouse died on 9 October 1997
Colleagues across the University will wish to join members of staff at the Nuffield Institute for Health in mourning the sad loss of a young colleague, Frances Rouse, who died on Thursday, 9 October following a sudden brain haemorrhage.

Frances joined the Nuffield Institute in September 1996 as a Teaching Fellow in the international division where she contributed to the teaching of a wide range of topics in public health and health management. Frances’ own specialist academic expertise lay in the fields of health promotion and health education, an area in which she had an MSc from Leeds Metropolitan University. Following earlier work in the Solomon Islands and Ghana, Frances had worked as a lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University immediately before joining the Nuffield Institute.

Frances will be missed for her modesty and strength, her enthusiasm and energy. She had a passionate concern for the values implicit in development and a practical commitment to realising those. She was valued by colleagues and students alike as a professional and a friend. Sympathies go to her immediate family and especially to her four year old daughter, Zinnie.

Frances’ family has asked that any donations be sent to: The Ghanaian Project, WOMANKIND Worldwide, 3 Albion Place, Galena Road, London W6 0LT.
