Dr. Moore has a longstanding and profound commitment to the training and development of learners from all backgrounds. His research focus has been in the investigation of factors involved in healthcare disparity with a particular focus on head and neck cancer incidence in medically underserved communities. He is the President and Founder of Health Education, Assessment and Leadership (HEAL), Inc. This organization began in 2004 as a travelling educational resource out of the back of his personal vehicle. Through this organization, he strives to educate the community on health issues, assess its needs and in the process build leaders from within the community to address those issues. This travelling resource has grown into the Healing Community Center (HCC), one of Atlanta’s newest Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers. This center is a free and affordable medical facility with four separate locations, which provide general adult medical care, pediatric medical care, specialty medical care, dental services as well as mental health services for the uninsured and disadvantaged. The HCC is focused on those who fall in the gap between public funded health care and the privately insured. A primary emphasis is on preventative health, nutrition and wellness. This center incorporates all of the major Atlanta academic institutions and community organizations in an integrated fashion to provide service-learning experiences while also providing the necessary care to those in need.
