Rachel Moon, MDDr. Rachel Moon has spent decades researching sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS, and trying to promote safe sleep. It’s a difficult topic to study, but the UVA professor of pediatrics does it for the families she’s met. “Almost every week, I talk to a family who’s lost the baby, and it’s heart-wrenching,” Moon said. “And many times, it doesn’t have to have happened.” Her work was featured in a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
