Dr. David Moore is a 22-year res­i­dent of Mar­i­on, Indi­ana. Born in Indi­anapo­lis, Moore received his doc­tor­ate in med­i­cine in the OBG­YN prac­tice, and moved to Cal­i­for­nia in 1978. After 16 years, he decid­ed to move to Mar­i­on, Indi­ana to be near his fam­i­ly again.

I’ve grown to have a deep love for Mar­i­on,” said Moore. I believe in the spir­it of altru­ism.” Moore is a devot­ed mem­ber of the Iron Men’s Min­istry, a local men’s group which meets week­ly to sup­port one another.

About one year ago, Moore start­ed the vol­un­teer group, MPow­er, ded­i­cat­ed to assist­ing and men­tor­ing at-risk youth. This group recent­ly com­plet­ed a com­mu­ni­ty gar­den project at 35th and Carey St., revi­tal­iz­ing two vacant lots, while teach­ing youth life lessons, and reward­ing them for their hard work. 

Moore is a true cham­pi­on for youth empow­er­ment in the com­mu­ni­ty and hopes to expand the pro­gram to assist ado­les­cents and young adults.
