The first panel consisted of Representative Stokes, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Representative Lowey, chair of the Congressional Caucus on Women’s Issues, and Representative Coburn, an obstetrician, who supported the candidate. Dr. Henry Foster, Surgeon General Nominee, was introduced by Senator Murray and Senator Clement.
