Posted on Thursday, February 26, 2015

Moore is an internationally renowned gerontologist and designer, serving as a leading authority on consumer lifespan behaviors and requirements. Beginning at the age of 26, for a period of three years, in an exceptional and daring sociological experiment, Moore traveled throughout the United States and Canada disguised as women more than eighty years of age of varying socio-economic status. With her body altered to simulate the normal sensory changes associated with aging, she was able to respond to people, products and environments as an elder.

Since 1990, Moore has designed more than 200 Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Environments for acute and sub-acute healthcare facilities throughout North America, Europe and Japan. She is a frequent lecturer, media guest, author of a number of articles and three books. She is the co-author of the American National Standards Committee on Anthropometry and is considered a pioneer of universal design.

Moore holds undergraduate degrees in industrial and environmental and communication design from the Rochester Institute of Technology, graduate degrees in psychology and counseling and in human development from Columbia University and has completed advanced studies in biomechanics at New York University’s medical school and Rusk Institute.

She has received numerous awards for her achievements including being named by ID Magazine as one of The 40 Most Socially Conscious Designers in the world. In 2000, a consortium of news editors and organizations named her as one of The 100 Most Important Women in America.

Established in 1995, The Dean Lela O’Toole International Speaker Series in the College of Human Sciences focuses on timely and relevant topics related to public policy, ethics, and international issues in the scholastic areas of the college.
