Columbus College of Art & Design’s Graduate Studies department presents a talk by Dr. Patricia Moore, President at MooreDesign Associates. Moore is an internationally renowned gerontologist and designer, serving as a leading authority on consumer lifespan behaviors and requirements. For three years (1979–1982), Moore traveled throughout the U.S. and Canada disguised an elderly woman. With her body altered to simulate the normal sensory changes associated with aging, she was able to respond to people, products, and environments as an elder. For her work, Dr. Moore was named by ID Magazine as one of the 40 Most Socially Conscious Designers in the world and was featured by ABC World News Tonight as one of 50 Americans Defining the New Millennium.
