President and Mrs. Bush discussed the work of the Bush Institute, highlighting the Warrior Open to honor our Nation’s vets, as well as the Global Health initiative’s Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon program to save lives in sub-Saharan Africa. Mrs. Bush mentioned her recent trip to Washington, D.C. where she voiced support for Afghan women and discussed the importance of ensuring gains for women and girls in Afghanistan are maintained.
