Join us on October 2, 2017 to kick off the Washington Space Business Roundtable’s 2017-2018 program year. Congressman Ami Bera will share his observations since taking over as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Space.
Congressman Ami Bera is a physician who was elected in 2012 to represent California’s Seventh Congressional District. He serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. In February 2017, Bera was elected Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Space by House Democrats.
The longest-serving Indian American currently in Congress, Bera had a twenty-year medical career before he was elected to the House of Representatives. After earning both his B.S. and M.D. from the University of California, Irvine, he did his residency in internal medicine at California Pacific Medical Center, eventually becoming chief resident.
Congressman Bera went on to put his medical experience to work for his community, serving Sacramento County as Chief Medical Officer. In that role, he fought to reduce the cost of health care, create jobs, and deliver care to tens of thousands of Sacramento residents. He then moved into education, working as clinical professor of medicine and associate dean for admissions and outreach at University of California, Davis, where he taught the next generation of doctors.
