Punchbowl News HQ debut at CBCF ALC

Punchbowl News HQ debuts at CBCF ALC

In honor of CBCF ALC week, we launched our first ever Punchbowl News HQ. Members of our team and the Congressional Black Caucus communities came together Thursday for thoughtful conversations on health equity, networking, music and food.

We were joined by speakers and experts in the health equity space. They included Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-Del.); Tesheia Johnson, deputy director of clinical research at Yale School of Medicine; Dr. Priscilla Pemu, associate dean for clinical research at Morehouse School of Medicine; Stephanie Dyson, vice president, U.S. policy & government affairs at Bristol Myers Squibb; Gary Puckrein, president and CEO of the National Minority Quality Forum; and Eric Gascho, senior vice president, policy and government affairs at the National Health Council.

A special thank you to PhRMA, who made the entire day possible.

We concluded the day with a “Toast to the Women of the CBC” in partnership with GlobalWIN. Tiffany Moore, GlobalWIN board chair, and Keenan Austin Reed, GlobalWIN advisory council chair, also gave remarks.

It’s taking the IRS years to process a small business tax credit. 1M+ small business owners who filed for the Employee Retention Credit are stuck in backlog or waiting on payment for their claims. Tell the IRS to lift the moratorium now.
