Jill Biden’s Durham Visit Focuses on Women’s Health

First Lady Jill Biden arrived in Durham, North Carolina on Wednesday to discuss women’s health issues. She is scheduled to deliver remarks on women’s health research in the city, following an executive order that will increase funding for research and data collection on women’s health conditions. The order aims to address unmet needs in areas such as menopause, arthritis, heart attack, and osteoporosis.

Biden’s visit comes amidst a flurry of attention on North Carolina from the White House as the November election approaches. Recent polls show a gender gap between Trump and Biden, with Trump leading among men and Biden leading among women. Women have indicated a higher likelihood of voting than men this year, with health care and the economy ranking as the top concerns for voters in the state.

Specifically, women in North Carolina have expressed concerns about mental health and abortion, with a higher sense of urgency on these issues compared to male voters. While very few voters remain undecided in the presidential race, women are more likely than men to have not yet made up their mind on the race for governor. The visit from First Lady Jill Biden highlights the importance of women’s health in the upcoming election and the impact it may have on voting decisions.
