Dr Kevin Moore


Kevin Moore

Consultant endocrinologist in Tallaght Hospital, Naas General Hospital and the Beacon Hospital will be one of our facilitators at Thriveabetes 2016. Kevin has been making occasional guest appearances at the Type 1 Diabetes Support group meetings in Dublin for a number of years. I feel that it says a lot when a group keeps asking you to return.

He works tirelessly to improve the life of patients with diabetes and those with chronic endocrine disorders. Dr. Moore is a strong advocate for healthy lifestyle with chronic conditions. He has undertaken a number of activities with patients, including climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, participating in triathlons and 5-10Km runs. He regularly gives voluntary patient education talks throughout Ireland, including at the Type 1 diabetes support group for adults in Dublin.

Kevin graduated with an honours medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 1996. In 2005 he completed the Irish Specialist Registrar Training Scheme (SpR) in Diabetes, Endocrinology and General Internal Medicine. He then travelled to America where he undertook a Fellowship in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. which is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest hospitals.

He returned to Ireland 2007 and took up a post in Naas General Hospital and Tallaght Hospital as a Consultant Endocrinologist where he continues to work today.

Into 2011, he became chairman of the Diabetes section of the Irish Endocrine Society, having been secretary of the same committee since 2008. He previously served as the chair of the Professional Services Committee of The Diabetes Federation of Ireland.

“I am really excited to be involved in Thriveabetes. Education is key to success in type 1 diabetes and Thriveabetes will provide patients with what they need in order to take control of their condition.”
