Kia ora, my name is Marie Jardine and I am a NZ Doctoral student.  I have been involved in Rotaract in New Zealand and Germany.  I have also participated in RYLA.
I am contacting you about my research, which aims to help older adults with swallowing problems.  One of my PhD projects is the first NZ study on people’s opinions about their own swallowing (eating and drinking) and nutrition.  I am looking for independent New Zealanders aged 65 years and older, who are willing to answer an online questionnaire (37 questions, about 10 minutes).  People are eligible to participate whether they do or do not have swallowing problems.
The link to the questionnaire is  Completed questionnaires go into a draw to win one of five $20 supermarket vouchers.
This study is funded by the NZ Health Research Council and HOPE Selwyn Foundation.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me ( or my supervisor, Dr Anna Miles (  Thank you for your time.
Best regards
Marie Jardine
