Biden visited from Feb. 3-4 in support of the Biden-Harris administration’s Cancer Moonshot and her own Joining Forces initiative for military families. On Feb. 3, Biden visited Logan Heights Family Health Center, a Family Health Centers of San Diego clinic, to highlight how the Administration is supporting health centers to improve access to cancer screenings and early detection efforts aimed at helping underserved communities.
“Really early detection is the key and a lot of cancers, a lot of cancers are curable. And people don’t need to be scared like they – I mean, you’re always scared when you hear the word cancer – but they don’t need to be afraid like people were 10 years ago, because now things have advanced so far,” Biden said at Logan Heights Family Health Center.
Later that day, as part of her Joining Forces initiative, Biden delivered remarks at a gathering of the crew and families of the littoral combat ship USS Gabrielle Giffords at Naval Base San Diego. On Feb. 4, Biden visited The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Veteran’s Village of San Diego in Oceanside.
