Her work focuses on developing and implementing national campaigns using traditional and social media to promote healthy behaviors and lifestyles. She co-directs the Harvard Mentoring Project, a national media campaign to recruit mentors for young people at risk of not living up to their potential, and she recently co-authored Eat Well, Stay Active, Have Fun: A Guide for Mentors, which integrates the basic principles of nutrition and physical activity with tips and activities for the mentor-mentee relationship. Previously she directed a project on changing public perceptions of aging. She was director of the Harvard Tobacco Project, working behind the scenes with the Hollywood creative community to reduce and denormalize the depiction of tobacco smoking in feature films popular with teens. Other public health initiatives she has worked on include the Squash It! Campaign to Prevent Youth Violence, the Designated Driver Campaign, and a national initiative on childhood immunization. She also conducted a study on cause-related marketing campaigns, examining opportunities for public health. Prior to coming to Harvard, she worked on environmental policy and the public understanding of science in Washington, DC. Ms. Moses received her undergraduate degree in chemistry from Cornell University and her master’s degree in health policy and management from the Harvard School of Public Health.Background Grateful to MetLife Foundation for supporting this project.
