Erin Moore

Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology

Erin Moore attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville as an undergraduate and earned her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Her Ph.D. program was interdisciplinary, emphasizing coursework in health psychology and education. Her thesis assessed the condom use intentions of college student-athletes, and her dissertation concerned the effect of religious behavior and beliefs on college students' alcohol use and sexual behavior. During her five years of graduate school, she was a member of the Community Health Research Group, which emphasized community-based participatory research and implemented several HIV education and screening interventions in the Kansas City metro area.
