WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says Jill Biden will be in charge of a new initiative to boost federal government research into women’s health. Women make up more than half the U.S. population but advocates say they remain understudied and underrepresented in health research. The first lady and other officials say the goal of the White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research is to fundamentally change the government’s approach. The first lady said former California first lady Maria Shriver raised the idea for the initiative during a meeting earlier this year. Jill Biden says she brought the idea to President Joe Biden and he took action.
