SAN ANTONIO – First Lady Jill Biden made several stops in San Antonio on Wednesday.

The centerpiece of Dr. Biden’s visit to the Mays Cancer Center was a listening session with experts about the cancer health disparities in the Latino community.

“Cancer really, I bet, touches every single one of us. But it doesn’t affect every community in the same way,” Biden said.

Her first stop was at the the May's Cancer Center at UT Health San Antonio.

That’s one of the issues the Biden administration’s Cancer Moonshot initiative seeks to address.

The First Lady then went Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland to tour a child development center and participate in a listening session.

The listening session focused on support of military children with disabilities, as part of the White House’s Joining Forces initiative, officials said.
