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 monthly meetings are networking meetings held at the Capital Yacht Club at District Wharf (800 Wharf St SW). The meetings are typically the 2nd Thursday of every month from September to June with social hour starting at 6:15PM and the featured talk beginning between 7:15 to 7:30PM.

To register to attend a talk, please visit the RSVP page.

With our new location, our meetings will have a new format! We will NOT be serving dinner since there are now a lot of restaurants around the Wharf.

will be presenting:

Remember the Animals! One Health and the National Biodefense Strategy

Ellen serves as Senior Health and Policy Specialist at EcoHealth Alliance, where she works on a variety of scientific and policy initiatives that advance the ecological health mission of the organization. One of her key projects there is to co-direct the Blue Ribbon Study Panel on Biodefense, a policy reform effort, and she also supports the organization’s global health and biosurveillance work. Previously as Principal of Carlin Communications, Ellen provided consulting services including writing, editing, and provision of technical expertise in many areas of science and science policy. In 2013, she completed a fellowship with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine, working on data analysis and other aspects of antimicrobial resistance. Prior to that, she was senior professional staff with the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security (Peter T. King, NY), where for more than five years she handled medical preparedness, biodefense, and science and technology policy. That position began as a fellowship with the American Veterinary Medical Association/American Association for the Advancement of Science. Ellen has also worked or volunteered as a small animal clinical veterinarian for organizations including the Washington Animal Rescue League, the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, PetCo, and private clinics, and continues to do so, serving her interests in animal health and welfare, public health, and parasitology. Ellen received a Bachelor of Science in biology from the College of Mount Saint Vincent and a doctorate in veterinary medicine from the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.
