Powers Principal Peggy Tighe recently served as a panelist at an ADAP Advocacy Association regional program where she discussed the current state of the 340B drug pricing program.

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program Regional Summit was held April 14 in Raleigh, North Carolina, in partnership with the North Carolina AIDS Action Network, AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the Community Access National Network. It focused on specific issues facing the AIDS Drug Assistance Program under the Affordable Care Act.

Peggy was one of five speakers during a roundtable discussion titled “Ryan White & 340B Drug Access.” She spoke on behalf of Ryan White Clinics for 340B Access (RWC-340B), a coalition of HIV/AIDS medical providers receiving support under the Ryan White CARE Act. The coalition is a nonprofit organization that works to advocate for the interests of fellow 340B Ryan White providers.

During her speech, Peggy talked about groups seeking to significantly alter the 340B program, the status of Congressional and agency activities on 340B, and what clinics and other advocates can do to protect and preserve the 340B program.

Peggy was joined by Guy Anthony, Founder & President at Black, Gifted & Whole; Timothy Broderick, National Director of Business Development at 340B Services; and Rhiannon Pennington-Marshall, Mobilizer at AHF. David Poole, Director of Legislative Affairs at AHF, moderated the discussion.

Peggy has experience working with 340B Health, Ryan White clinics, the American Medical Association and dozens of national coalitions, giving her unique insight into the implications of various potential legislative and administrative changes. She works closely with both the Healthcare and the Government Relations and Public Policy teams at Powers.

Peggy focuses her practice on lobbying, coalition building, crafting and implementing grass roots campaigns, and coordinating media relations. She has experience strategizing and implementing federal grassroots activities, including grasstops (high-level grassroots), coalition building, letter writing, and database building.
