Dr. Moore, an internist/nephrologist, is the Internal Medicine Residency Program Director at the Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC), in Danville, VA. After receiving his medical education at the University of North Carolina, his internal medicine and nephrology training were completed at The John Hopkins Hospital. His nephrology fellowship at Hopkins, under the direction of Dr. Gordan Walker, was in hypertension research concerning the physiology and pathophysiologic role of the reninangiotensin-aldosterone system in essential hypertension.
Dr. Moore is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He is designated by the American Society of Hypertension as a Hypertension Specialist. In addition, he is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine and at the Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
“Almost anyone can read the latest research to us, but it’s a rare opportunity to hear from a physician that has been behind the latest research for the last 20 years,” said second year medical student Scott Bland. “Dr. Moore brought a unique insight that spanned from the actual bench research to the public health approaches to educating physicians about the results of those studies.”
