Public Health & Policy

The Moore Institute is working to instigate policy changes that will improve the health of all Oregonians. The Public Health & Policy Committee works to generate effective policy strategies and solutions that will lead to increased access to healthy food and the development of healthy communities by engaging with a variety of stakeholders to break down silos and create solutions together.

The Public Health and Policy Committee has generated enthusiasm and a sense of urgency about the Moore Institute's mission, striking a chord with key community leaders and producing additional ideas and connections. Much of the committee's work to date has focused on working to build the constituency for developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD) policy activities.
