Jill Biden: I am excited to share the first major deliverable from our White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research

Jill Biden recently shared on X/Twitter:

“Today, I am excited to share the first major deliverable from our White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research:

$100 million in funding for women’s health research and development as part of ARPA-H‘s first-ever Sprint for Women’s Health.

Together, we will build a new future for women’s health. We will close research gaps, accelerate new ideas, and change women’s lives.”

Jill Biden is the First Lady of the United States, a community college educator, and cancer advocate. Dr. Biden also served as Second Lady of the United States from 2009–2017. After Dr. Biden and then-Vice President Joe Biden lost their son Beau to brain cancer in 2015, they helped push for a national commitment to ending cancer – White House Cancer Moonshot. Following the Obama-Biden Administration, then-former Vice President Biden and Dr. Biden continued their cancer work through the Biden Cancer Initiative.

Dr. Biden’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself was published in 2019. Her second children’s book, JOEY: The Story of Joe Biden, was published in 2020. In recognition of World Cancer Day 2022, the President and First Lady reignited the Cancer Moonshot, laying out bold goals and a vision to end cancer.  As First Lady, Dr. Biden has focused on supporting patients and their loved ones during their cancer journeys; advocating for cancer screenings; and reducing health inequities in diagnosis, treatment, research, and outcomes.
