CBSA and Health Scholars Host State Rep. Shannon Bird
CBSA partnered with Westminster-based Health Scholars this week to host state Rep. Shannon Bird. The health technology company was founded by healthcare professionals who sought to improve patient safety through the delivery of experiential learning and advanced simulation to health care providers. The visit was a great opportunity for the Health Scholars team and CBSA to talk to Rep. Bird about the critical role of state programs like the Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Program and the need for improved access to capital for the life sciences ecosystem here.
CBSA looks forward to working with Rep. Bird next session on policy initiatives that will continue to support the industry in Colorado, including advancing opportunities to increase access to capital and grow our talent pipeline for bioscience.
