TAMPA, Fla. — First Lady Dr. Jill Biden plans to visit Tampa and South Florida during a trip to the Sunshine State Friday.

The White House said Dr. Biden will visit the Moffitt Cancer Center and then travel to Opa-Locka, outside Miami, to visit the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Miami.

The visit comes just two weeks after President Joe Biden announced a “reignition of the cancer moonshot he launched in 2016. The goals of the program are “to reduce the death rate from cancer by at least 50 percent over the next 25 years and improve the experience of people and their families living with and surviving cancer.”
