Bijan Nafea

Medtronic’s locally developed products

Stents used for opening cardiac arteries, and a potentially revolutionary therapy called Renal Denervation are a few of things we will learn about in this most informative program. Bijan Nafea, Sr. Principal Design Assurance Engineer for Medtronic, and his colleague Chriselle Peterson, Engineering Manager for Medtronic will be our speakers on March 7th. They will share with us the latest devices being designed here in Sonoma County and bring along some “show and tell” for us to see.

Bijan has over 30 years of experience in the quality, product development and compliance engineering roles. He is currently responsible for managing testing of Medtronic devices including international product standards certification (radio, product safety, EMC, etc.) as well as human factors evaluations for the Coronary and Renal Denervation division.

Chriselle Peterson started her Medical Device career at Medtronic in 2005 as a member of the Coronary Design Assurance Engineering team. She has been part of New Product Development Programs for coronary stenting, including drug eluting stents, and other catheter based technologies and accessories. She is also passionate about supporting STEM programs for youth, especially the local Sonoma County event for Expanding Your Horizons, created to nurture girls’ interest in mathematics and science courses and to encourage them to expand their career vision to include science- and mathematics-based careers.

Guests are welcome to join us on March 7th to celebrate this star of business we are blessed to have here in Santa Rosa.
