The BAC engages business and civic-minded leaders to solve the most challenging regional issues facing the San Francisco-Silicon Valley Bay Area. Over the course of the trip, the BAC delegation met with Members of Congress, thought leaders, and policy makers in an effort to build ties between the Bay Area and the rest of the nation and advocate for its key policy priorities in the areas of housing, transportation, homelessness, health care, and more.
In addition to meeting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and attending briefings with Congressional committees, the delegation visited Arent Fox’s DC office for a health policy briefing by Senior Government Relations Director Sonja Nesbit. Sonja formerly served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Legislation in the US Department of Health and Human Services under President Obama. A primary focus of her current practice is counseling and advocating on behalf of hospitals, health systems, device and drug manufacturers, professional medical societies, and patient groups.
Arent Fox also hosted a briefing by US Chamber of Commerce Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley following Sonja’s remarks.
