Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Welcomes New Health Advisory Board Chair


Stephen G. Moore, MD, MPH ’93, president and chief executive officer of CarDon & Associates, has been appointed chair of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s 39-member advisory board.

In 2012, Moore and his wife Julia founded the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse, an academic research center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health dedicated to applying the tools and methodology of prevention to the challenging social issue of child sexual abuse.

“Stephen’s vision, expertise and passion for our School and its mission will help lead us as we embark on our Centennial year,” says Michael J. Klag, MD, MPH ’87, dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “We are excited that Stephen has agreed to be our new chair.”

Serving as a conduit between external audiences and the dean and faculty, the Health Advisory Board brings expertise and advocacy to all areas of the School’s work. Since its establishment in 1981, the Board has created new programs, supported key initiatives and continues to offer critical advice and counsel on a wide variety of efforts. Members include Johns Hopkins University trustees, alumni and friends from corporations, foundations and private organizations.

A native of Indiana, Moore graduated from the Indiana University School of Medicine. He trained at the Mayo Clinic in internal medicine and graduated from the Bloomberg School’s Preventive Medicine program, where he earned his masters in public health and spent a year as chief resident. As CEO of CarDon & Associates, Moore develops and manages senior-living communities throughout Indiana. The company currently owns and manages 17 communities on 14 campuses.

“I am honored to work with the School leadership and a group of like-minded colleagues who are dedicated to helping others,” Moore says. “Public health is a powerful tool to make positive changes in the world, and the board sits at the center of an approach to solving some of the world’s broadest public health issues.”

Moore assumes the role of chair after the passing of Frank L. Hurley, PhD ’71, a philanthropist, Johns Hopkins University trustee and member of the Dean's Alumni Advisory Council. For more than 40 years, Hurley was an authority on research strategy and study design for pharmaceuticals, biologics and medical devices. At the time of his passing, Hurley was chief scientific officer at RRD International, LLC.

Hurley had a profound impact on the School and its mission, and his legacy will continue to be felt for years to come.

“Frank once said to me that other than his family, his involvement with the School was one of the most meaningful parts of his life,” Moore says. “He was a role model and a friend and is missed as a colleague on the board.”
