WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama plans to put an international spin on her core initiatives when she visits Europe later this month.
The first lady's itinerary includes stops in London and the Italian cities of Milan, Vicenza and Venice from June 15-21.
Mrs. Obama will lead members of a still-to-be-named presidential delegation to the Milan Expo and highlight her program to combat childhood obesity.
She'll visit U.S. service members stationed in Vicenza as part of her work supporting military families.
The London stop will focus on her initiative to help girls worldwide attend and stay in school.
Unspecified cultural stops are on tap for Venice.
The first lady will be accompanied by daughters Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson.
