Safe Moms Staff Members Health Promotion & Sports Medicine

Diane Elliot, M.D., Esther Moe, Ph.D., MPH, and Linn Goldberg, M.D., are faculty in the Division of Health Promotion & Sports Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon. They are clinicians and research scientists, and their studies primarily involve designing, assessing and disseminating strategies to improve the health of high school athletes, middle school students, and workers, including firefighters, law enforcement officers and hospital employees. Inspired by observing the unique abilities of women firefighters talking with mothers and in partnership with iWomen, they conceived of these videos as a means to improve the health of families with young children. Drs. Elliot and Moe received FEMA grant funding to produce the videos. They are grateful to the many safety and fitness consultants, acknowledged in the videos’ credits, who assisted in making these videos. More information about Drs. Elliot, Moe and Goldberg is available at, and we can be reached through the contact link on this website.
