President Joe Biden will be speaking Thursday afternoon at the University of Tampa.

He is scheduled to speak in Fletcher Hall inside Plant Hall at the downtown Tampa campus.

Biden is scheduled to begin his speech at about 1:30 p.m. The topics will be his plan to "protect and strengthen Social Security and Medicare and lower healthcare costs,'' according to a news release.

The White House did not release information if the speech is open to the public.

The visit to Tampa comes just after his second State of the Union speech before Congress on Tuesday night.

The president was supposed to stop in Tampa and Orlando in July, but those plans were cancelled after he tested positive for COVID-19.
