Dr. Ben Moses

For Dr. Ben Moses, public service is a family tradition.

Following his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, Ben served for more than a decade in the US Army in the Medical Service Corps and Medical Corps. As a Second Lieutenant, Ben treated our nation’s first responders conducting 24-hour rescue operations in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. As Battalion Surgeon for the Warrior Transition Battalion, Ben addressed the most urgent medical needs of thousands of Soldiers and their families seeking a safe, supported transition to civilian life.

Ben currently serves as a critical care physician and anesthesiologist at the University of Virginia. Ben stepped up into leadership at UVA as a Faculty Senator, serving on the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, as well as on the Ethics Committee for UVA Health. He also currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Carolinas-Virginias Chapter of the Society of Critical Care Medicine, and on its national Ethics Committee. In 2020, Ben was recognized for his contributions to health education and service as a Fellow in the American College of Chest Physicians.

In his free time, Ben is an active community leader volunteering at the Nelson County Pantry, Blue Ridge Food Bank, and Habitat for Humanity, and works with PACEM (People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry) as a member of Congregation B’nai Israel, providing shelter for women experiencing homelessness.

A native of San Antonio, Texas, Ben is proud to marry into Virginia through his wife, Dr. Emily Moses. Their desire to be close to family brought the doctors to Southern Albemarle County nearly a decade ago with their 11- and 8-year-old children, along with Dana, their 12-year-old mutt.

As our neighbors navigate times of tremendous crisis — from a global pandemic to economic recession to racial injustice — Ben is ready to offer clear, steady leadership in the House of Delegates for the health and success of Central Virginians. In Richmond, Ben will be a fierce advocate for all who call the 59th District home.
