Quianta Moore, M.D., J.D., is the Huffington Fellow in Child Health Policy at the Baker Institute for Public Policy. Her research focuses on developing empirically informed policies to advance the health of children. Moore utilizes mixed methodologies, including community-based participatory research and surveys, to gain insight into the health needs of communities and to develop data-driven, tailored health policy recommendations. Moreover, she helps funders and community stakeholders develop strategies to support an equitable future for children and their communities. Her most recent work identified critical challenges in early childhood development and provided policy recommendations to address them. The report was disseminated nationally and locally.
Moore received an M.D. from Baylor College of Medicine, a J.D. from the University of Houston Law Center and a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from Cornell University.
