Service to profession
Faculty earns national honor from bovine vets
Monday, Sept. 20, 2010
PULLMAN - Dale Moore, director of veterinary extension in the College of Veterinary Medicine, was awarded the 2010 Award of Excellence in service to the profession from the American Association of Bovine Practitioners. The award is given annually to a nominee whose professional activities have had a consistent and direct influence on daily activities of veterinarians in bovine practice. It is sponsored by Alpharma, a global animal health, pharmaceutical and nutrition company.
Moore’s career has been devoted to the continuing education of practicing veterinarians, beginning with a U.S. Dairy Production Medicine Certificate program developed while she was an extension veterinarian in Pennsylvania. While at the University of California, she refocused the certificate programs toward emerging issues in the industry and engaged practicing dairy veterinarians throughout the state.
At WSU, she has a much larger constituency for her programs - including youth, producers and veterinarians - and has broadened her bovine continuing education work to include beef production. She has developed continuing education programs that utilize new media, including Web based courses that lead to certificates, Twitter feeds to notify practitioners of emerging issues, and more traditional meetings across the state with small and large groups.
Moore was invited to participate in a Harvard University program in continuing medical education, has actively designed methods to measure the impact of her own programs, and has published the results of these impact evaluations in peer reviewed journals.
She has been an active AABP member since she received her DVM degree and has been an officer in the Academy of Dairy Veterinary Consultants for many years. She is board certified in the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine, has served on the exam committee for the epidemiology specialty and the general examination for the last six years, and is chair of the examination committee. She represents veterinary medicine as a member of the Advisory Committee on Foreign Animal Diseases to the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.
