Caught Our Eye

Infectious disease group picks up Rep. Bass aide

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Dec. 7, 2017

The Infectious Diseases Society of America has caught a new advocate from the office of Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.).

George Fistonich was previously Bass's senior policy adviser, handling a range of legislative issues including health care, education and environmental issues. He now works as the IDSA's senior policy and advocacy manager.

The medical association lobbies on health-care, budget and tax issues through its in-house team and contracts with Hart Health Strategies and Williams & Jensen.
