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.
