Seleena E. Moore, MPH
I have over a decade of public health research, programming, and evaluation experience. My work at SBHA includes leading and supporting local, state, and national programs aimed at strengthening the capacity of school and community health centers to address and improve health outcomes around equitable access and care, social determinants of health, adolescent relationships, and school and health center partnerships. I also work with health systems and organizations to cultivate youth-led approaches to health care delivery and oversee SBHA’s youth development portfolio of trainings, resources, and partnerships, including Project REACH (Realizing Excellence through Academics and Careers in Health), a youth-centered health careers pathway program for Black high school students. I believe that a youth development approach to health isn’t just an idea; it’s a necessity that can foster a healthier generation equipped with understanding the impact of social factors on their health, how to capitalize on their strengths and protective factors, and translate information and awareness into actions that change lives.
My professional experience and interests include community-based health promotion, racial justice in health care, and global health. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Globalization from Ohio State University, a Master of Public Health from the University of Virginia, and am currently pursuing a DrPH in Health Promotion and Health Education from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
