First lady Jill Biden will be treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a foot injury she suffered while she was walking on a Hawaiian beach, a White house spokesman said Thursday. President Joe Biden will be with her.

“Last weekend, prior to her two official events in Hawaii, the first lady stepped on an object on the beach which became lodged in her left foot," said spokesman Michael LaRosa. "She will undergo a procedure today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to remove the object. The president will join her.”
