OUR MISSION

The One Health Academy promotes interdisciplinary collaboration among health professionals, industry, and policy makers by promoting public health, as well as environmental, food, agricultural, and economic protection.

Our monthly events serve to unite:

  • Federal governmental departments
  • Non-governmental organizations
  • Private industry leaders

to promote collaboration through networking, discussion following educational presentations, and informal mentoring.

One Health Academy meetings are dinner meetings held at the NEW Capital Yacht Club at Channel Inn located at 660 Water St SW, Washington, D.C. 20024 around the left side of the Inn on the water front.  The meetings are typically the 2nd Thursday of every month from September to June with dinner starting at 6:30PM and the featured talk beginning between 7:15 to 7:30PM.

Next Speaker

Our next speaker on November 13th will be Dr. Norman Moore, Director of Scientific Affairs for Infectious Diseases at Alere. His talk is titled, "Antibiotic Resistance: A Global Health Threat." Please look to our event schedule as we set talks for this coming Fall.

Norman Moore received his undergraduate degrees from Dartmouth College and his PhD in microbiology from the University of New Hampshire. He has worked at Digene Diagnostics, developing an assay for human papilloma virus, the etiological agent for cervical cancer, and Gene-Trak Systems where he commercialized diagnostic assays for food pathogens. While working at Binax, he developed the first ever rapid urinary antigen tests for Legionella and Streptococcus pneumoniae, both of which are now in the IDSA guidelines. While R&D Director, he led the development of many other tests and received six patents. Binax was acquired by Alere where he now serves as Director of Scientific Affairs for Infectious Diseases where he works more closely with the medical community. He is currently an author on the international point-of-care infectious disease guidelines for the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute and a member of the College of American Pathology point-of-care committee.
