Michele Obama and Dr. Jill Biden Visit Penn to Support Veteran’s Health Initiative

 

First Lady Michele Obama and Second Lady Jill Biden spoke about the “Joining Forces” initiative on April 11. This event marked the one-year anniversary of “Joining Forces,” a health care and treatment program for military personnel. The event, held in conjunction with the School of Nursing, was held at Irvine Auditorium, which was filled to capacity.
“Nurses represent America’s largest healthcare force,” Biden said. “More than 500 nursing schools and 150 nursing organizations are joining forces to meet the unique healthcare needs of servicemen, veterans and their families.”
“You have come to the right university,” School of Nursing Dean Afaf Meleis said. “We are committed to Joining Forces and ready to meet the needs of servicemen and women.”
