Pleasant, Mich.

Dr. Biden and Dr. Vivek participated in a panel discussion on the success of a $9 million five-year grant project, entitled Project AWARE, from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe received the grant in April 2019 and is now in the third year of Project AWARE.

It was the second visit to an Indian reservation for Dr. Biden since becoming first lady in January. She visited the Navajo Nation in late April.
