Live webcast tomorrow with President Bill Clinton

On Tuesday, December 1, President Bill Clinton will participate in a panel discussion on World AIDS Day, hosted by the Clinton Foundation and the International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment Programs (ICAP), at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. President Clinton will be joined by Dr. Wafaa El-Sadr, Director ICAP, and other distinguished panelists to address the global and domestic state of HIV/AIDS.

Free admission tickets for tomorrow's event were granted on a "first come, first served" basis to people in the New York area today, but for those unable to attend the event at Columbia University, a live webcast will be available for viewing.

Register online and on Tuesday morning receive instructions via email for watching the webcast. Three registrants will also be randomly selected to receive a free copy of Bill Clinton's My Life as well as tea produced by farmers that the Clinton Foundation works with in Rwanda.

The conversation with President Clinton will be available tomorrow at 12:15 p.m. EST.

The former president was in Chicago earlier this month to address guests at a luncheon at Chicago's Palmer House hotel which raised an estimated $400,000 for Chicago House, a housing and supportive service for people living with HIV and AIDS.

Since leaving office, Clinton established the Clinton Global Initiative to work towards solutions to issues including homelessness and specifically homelessness in the HIV/AIDS community and the impact it has on an individual's health and stability.
