On Thursday, June 23, 2022, FoundCare welcomed First Lady Jill Biden to the Palm Springs health center as she promoted the Cancer Moonshot initiative. The First Lady toured FoundCare's Promise Fund Mammography Screening Center before speaking to FoundCare leaders and Promise Fund patient navigators. After her visit to FoundCare, Biden attended the Cancer Moonshot event held at the West Palm Beach Hilton, where she gave a speech along with Nancy Brinker, founder of the Promise Fund of Florida.

FoundCare's Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Irizarry, had the privilege of meeting the First Lady with Women's Health Director Rose Philius and Nurse Manager Kathy Stewart.

"I am incredibly honored to have hosted the First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden, along with Deputy Secretary Palm of Health and Human Services at FoundCare," said CEO Christopher Irizarry. "It is not every day a Health Center CEO has this privilege. We were humbled by her visit, her commitment to cancer screening, and for recognizing our unique breast cancer screening program. Most importantly, I am grateful to our staff who make everything possible."
