“It is an honor to be recognized by the society and my colleagues,” Moore said. “I have been fortunate to be able to do what I love in transplant as a clinician, researcher and educator. I am surrounded by great colleagues and friends who have always been so supportive. Our goal is always to improve the care and lives of our patients.”
Moore has had many of her innovative research ideas published as well as presented around the country. She is also passionate about educating others in the world of transplantation, both through giving invited lectures around the country and teaching in the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing.
