BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - Stepping off Air Force One in light pink, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden began her three day visit to the Bay State Thursday afternoon.

On Thursday, Dr. Biden spent time in Charlestown, meeting with members of Home Base, and received a tour of the organization.

The Red Sox Foundation and Mass. General program is dedicated to "healing the invisible wounds of war, for Veterans of all eras" and helps military families struggling with mental health issues, like PTSD.

On Friday, the First Lady has quite the busy schedule.

She'll begin her first full day in the Commonwealth at the Boston Convention and Exhibition center at 10:45 a.m., attending and speaking at this year's "American Federation of Teachers" convention. Roughly 3,000 people are expected to attend, including teachers, school personnel, healthcare professionals, and public employees.

Also speaking at the event are U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, as well as former Boston Mayor and current U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh.

Later Friday morning, Dr. Biden will visit Eversource Station 99, meeting with Bunker Hill Community College students. They're scheduled to talk about their partnership with the utility and local unions to provide job training opportunities.

Friday afternoon, the First Lady will take a short flight to Nantucket.

On Saturday, she'll attend a Democratic National Committee finance event on the Island.
