ALBUQUERQUE — First lady Jill Biden plans to visit an Albuquerque health care facility as part of a three-day, two-state visit to the U.S. Southwest this week.

The White House announced Biden will be accompanied by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham when she visits the First Choice Community Healthcare clinic in Albuquerque's South Valley on Wednesday afternoon.

Biden on Thursday and Friday is scheduled to visit the Navajo Nation's capital in Window Rock, Ariz. Details of that stop haven't been released yet.
