California Life Sciences Association’s 3rd Anniversary Celebrations Draw Record Crowds in San Diego and South San Francisco

2018 marks the 3rd Anniversary since BayBio and the California Healthcare Institute (CHI) joined forces to become California’s premier life sciences trade association. To celebrate this great milestone, we held two events in San Diego (July 11) and South San Francisco (July 17), to bring our members and California’s broader biomedical community together. We are so pleased that nearly 900 of you (a record!) joined us for two great evenings of networking, live music, excellent food, beer and wine, raffles and more.

On July 11, CLSA hosted our San Diego Anniversary & Open House celebration on the expansive back terrace of Johnson & Johnson Innovation | JLABS.  Members and guests enjoyed local beer and wine from 32 North, Serpentine Cider and The Wine Militia, our favorite URBN Catering and Tacos El Gabacho food trucks, the Viscous Music band while learning more about CLSA and our partners.

In South San Francisco, CLSA hosted our second celebration on July 17 at our new office and Events Center.  Food trucks from El Sur Empanada and Opie’s GSB served hot food and members and guests enjoyed beer from Anchor Brewing and wines from Robert Hall while listening to music, networking and touring our new offices.

We would like to thank our members and the greater California life sciences community for your continued support of CLSA. Because of you, we are able to continue our 40-year legacy and ongoing mission of working closely with industry, government, academia and others throughout our great state to shape public policy, improve access to innovative technologies and grow California’s life sciences economy.
