Five takeaways from the 2020 Point of Care Communication Council Summit – Media News – MM&M

1. Point of care has emerged from the shutdown haze largely unscathed.

Last year’s inaugural Point of Care Communication Council (PoC3) Summit felt like the channel’s debutante ball. Enthusiasm was high; a sense that marketers had finally awakened to the channel’s potential permeated the official panels as well as the informal between-session conversations. It was the rare industry event that people attended because they wanted to, not because they felt an obligation to show up and be seen.

In her opening remarks, PoC3 executive director Karen Newmark noted that point of care remains the closest healthcare analog to a point of purchase, where decisions are made and

Free Lake Oswego: Vote No on Metro 2020 Transport Package

The Metro 2020 Transport Package protects Lake Oswego for private ownership. The Metro 2020 Transport package keeps Black, Brown and Indigenous people from accessing the most beautiful freshwater lake in the Portland Metro region. The Grande Ronde Tribe was forcibly removed from this area. The oldest indigenous artifacts in Oregon have been found near Lake Oswego. There is no public access to Lake Oswego for Portland Metro residents.

Development of elite housing and a major religious temple (Mormons) followed. According to Cadillac Desert
