President Joe Biden will host a bipartisan Oval Office meeting on cancer Wednesday, his first move as president to reinvigorate efforts he made during Barack Obama’s administration.

“Defeating cancer is of significant personal importance to the president, first lady and the vice president,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said at a briefing. “Cancer is of course a disease that impacts, affects many Americans no matter their political affiliation.”
