Former VP Joe Biden To Discuss Ending Cancer At SXSW
Yes, the man known around the inters-of-nets as Cool Hand Joe will be giving a speech at the festival about efforts to end cancer. A fight we all wholly should get behind.
Announced today (Mar. 6) Uncle Joe will speak in Austin on Sunday, which will take place during the festival’s SXSW Interactive event. Biden plans on discussing actions behind his new cancer-fighting initiative.
The initiative will aim to improve data standards, help researchers, work with community care organizations to improve access to care and push to ensure patients can afford treatments. Biden has been focused on improving cancer research efforts since his son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, died of brain cancer in 2015.
