About Christopher Moore
Hi, my name is Christopher Moore, and I am a Senior Consultant with The Center for Connection & Desire. In my role, I work with organizations to identify, plan and execute education.
I place special emphasis on inclusive, relatable language, while also acknowledging the historic and regional contexts which exist within all topics. My areas of interest, and expertise include:
- Crisis communications
- Effective communication
- Leadership development
- LGBTQIA+ health and wellness
- Oral histories
- Program development
- Reproductive health
- Technical and grant writing
My background is wildly diverse
I am a Delaware native, a graduate of the University of Delaware and a two-term AmeriCorps alum. My first and only assignment in public service was with ChristianaCare’s Community Health Department, in Wilmington, where I remain to this day. In the 15 years since, I have helped build the section into a diverse, wide-ranging section which supports the clinical operations of the hospital; provides quality education and connection to resources across the state; explores innovative ways to evaluate non-traditional health interventions; and invests in community programs that address the social determinants of health.
In December 2021, I was promoted to Director of Education and Community Engagement. I am responsible for the oversight and growth of all community health education programs, as well as continuing to identify and nurture community partnerships and investments. This work is central to the mission of ChristianaCare and is responsible for ensuring that the system is providing community members with the education and support needed to receive the health care that they deserve along with fostering strategic investments which create the capacity to meet the needs of our community so that people can live their best and healthiest life.
I am also an adjunct faculty member in Delaware Technical Community College, where I teach English. I am an advocate for reproductive health education and access to resources. Together with Dr. Dukes and Dr. Judy Herrman, we have trained, presented and been published on topics ranging from the effectiveness of interventions for teens, including Wise Guys, to the use of inclusive language in education; the latter, via “Who’s at the Water Cooler” received national recognition when it was published by the Center for Sex Education as part of their anthology of lesson plans for sexual health educators. I am a fierce advocate of the LGBTQ+ community and commit much of my time and energy to service and philanthropy. I was recognized for this work in 2020 with a Jefferson Award for Public Service. That year, I was also appointed by Gov. John Carney to the State Council of the Arts.
I am not all work, though. The pandemic reminded me how much I enjoy not working; and, my personal life is just as colorful. I travel, I read, I am obsessed with music and art. I paint, I build things, I take photos and I like to explore cities. I spend a good amount of time with my partner in Toronto, and plan to one day make a move to and become a citizen of Canada.
