Moriarty will work under Kimberly Lynch, director of the ONC's Office of Programs and Engagement. She has been detailed to the ONC from HHS' Health Resources and Services Administration, where she helped manage the National Health Service Corps and the Nurse Corps programs. While there she “focused on supporting local NGOs (nongovernmental organizations) working on HIV/AIDS education and prevention, and rural community development issues,” according to Lynch, who made the announcement to ONC staff Thursday. She also served as a gender specialist for the World Bank Group, where she worked “to ensure the needs of women and girls were included” in its activities abroad.
Moriarty previously served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the West African nations of Benin, from 1993 to 1997, in rural community development, primarily in healthcare, gender equality, and HIV prevention and education; and in Togo, 2000-01, in HIV/AIDS training, advocacy and patient support under a United Nations program.
She has a master's degree in public health from the University of Maryland and a bachelor's in international trade from Auburn University.
