Clen Damon Miguel Moore
Dr. Moore (Fellow, American Academy of Pediatrics) is the University of Mississippi’s twenty-third Rhodes Scholar. He is also the first African American elected to a Rhodes Scholarship from the state of Mississippi. Entering Ole Miss twenty years after James Meredith, Dr. Moore was a charter member of the University Honors Program. As a junior, he received the Taylor Medal for excellence in English. As a senior, he was president of the premed honor society AED. After graduating summa cum laude with a BA in English in 1986, Dr. Moore began his medical studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, taking a two-year leave of absence to earn a second BA in English Language and Literature from Oxford University, before returning to Hopkins to complete his MD in 1992. Dr. Moore completed an internship and residency in pediatrics at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle and then worked in Byhalia, Mississippi, as a pediatrician in the National Health Service Corps. For the last twenty-three years he has been a physician partner in private practice in northern Virginia. He has served on the Board of Directors for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic and, since 2015, chaired the Charitable Foundation and Philanthropic Committee of Loudoun Medical Group. Dr. Moore was one of two pediatricians nationally recognized with the Local Heroes Award by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2012. While Dr. Moore’s first newborn patients are now in graduate school, he continues his work with the next generation as physician, mentor, and friend.
