Weekly Policy Update: CBSA Co-Hosts Aurora Facility Tour for State Senator Rhonda Fields
By: Colorado BioScience Association Date: 10/25/2019
This week CBSA partnered with CSL Behring to host state Senator Rhonda Fields for a tour of the CSL Plasma Collection Center in Aurora. On the tour, the collection center managers were able to show Senator Fields the process for donating plasma – which is the first step in the process of manufacturing plasma-derived therapies that patients rely on every day. Plasma-derived therapies replace missing or deficient proteins that allow people to live healthy and more productive lives, including individuals living with alpha-1 disease, primary immunodeficiency disease, hereditary angioedema, and other rare conditions.
During the tour, we also had the chance to talk to Senator Fields about the growing life sciences industry in Colorado and the work the association is doing to create a pro-innovation environment that will lead to the next generation of treatments and cures for patients around the world.
We look forward to working with Senator Fields on the issues that matter most to our members and the patients we serve.
