CLSA Hosts Congresswoman Mimi Walters for Member Tours at DexCom & Organovo
August 3, 2016
By Will Zasadny
The visits were an opportunity to provide Congresswoman Walters, a winner of CLSA’s 2016 legislator Visionary Award, with a firsthand look at the many issues innovators in California’s life sciences sector are tackling to improve patient health and well-being.
Walters expressed a keen desire to better understand the life sciences community and the innovations that companies like Organovo and DexCom are developing, as well as issues and policies — such as tax or regulatory hurdles — that can be especially challenging for growing companies.
Congresswoman Walters’ tour exemplifies CLSA’s efforts to provide premier educational opportunities to policymakers and thought leaders in Washington, Sacramento and locally.
