Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Irvine on Saturday.
He is scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the Patient Safety, Science and Technology Summit at the Hotel Irvine, 17900 Jamboree Road.
Biden will be following another Democrat heavy-hitter as Bill Clinton is set to be Friday's keynoter at the same summit.
The gathering is presented by the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, which seeks to end preventable deaths by getting clinicians, administrators, medical technology companies, payers, government, and patients to work together on solutions.
The Orange County visit will be part of a Southern California swing for Biden that begins Friday, when the vice president is scheduled to visit West Los Angeles College to promote his boss' proposal to make two years of community college free.
Biden will "discuss the importance of helping Americans go to college and get the skills they need to succeed," the White House announced of the LA event.
