Kirsten Moore directs Pew’s health care products project, which seeks to advance federal policies to improve the safety of over-the-counter drug products and dietary supplements. She guides the project’s research and is building partnerships with other organizations around this goal.
Before joining Pew, Moore was director of partnerships for Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, where she worked with domestic violence survivors and experts to pursue and advance legislation to prevent domestic abusers from purchasing firearms. For a decade before that, she was president of the Reproductive Health Technologies Project, which seeks to expand reproductive health options for women in the United States. Under her leadership, the organization played a critical role in securing evidence-based labeling of Food and Drug Administration-approved contraception, including over-the-counter labeling for emergency contraception.
She has served on the boards of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington and the Ballot Initiative Strategy Center Foundation. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the College of William and Mary and a master’s degree in public affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
