Bob Moore, founder of Bob’s Red Mill, passed away Feb. 10, leaving a legacy of philanthropy and advocacy for nutrition and health. The OHSU Moore Institute for Nutrition & Wellness was founded with a gift from Bob and Charlee Moore in 2011. “From the first day I met Bob, he was always asking how we could convince people to eat a healthier diet,” said Dr. Kent Thornburg, former director of the institute and professor emeritus in the School of Medicine. "He was an extraordinary person, but more than that he was a dear friend who will be greatly missed.”
