Notable Heroes in Health Care: Reggie Moore

Last updated on December 17th, 2021 at 12:22 pm

Reggie Moore works to find solutions to the growing violence epidemic in Wisconsin. 

In his role at the Medical College of Wisconsin, Moore serves as a leader in public health, community engagement, equity and social justice.

Moore leads MCW’s local and statewide efforts in communities disproportionately burdened by interpersonal violence, ensuring that the voices of those most impacted are centered in the solutions to address violence as a public health disease, colleagues say. Recently, Moore’s Division of Violence Prevention received $6.6 million in federal funding to support its work.

Prior to joining MCW in May 2021, Moore served as the director of violence prevention at the City of Milwaukee Health Department. During his tenure with the city, he helped develop Milwaukee’s first community-driven comprehensive violence prevention plan, known as the Blueprint for Peace, while expanding trauma services for youth and families exposed to violence, in partnership with Milwaukee County. 

He also launched 414 LIFE, a community-based violence interruption approach to reducing gun violence, in partnership with local hospitals and community agencies.
