    Hillary Clinton is scheduled to address The Black Women's Agenda Symposium in Washington, D.C., Friday, in what could be her first public event since she fell ill during the Sept. 11 commemoration ceremony Sunday morning.

    The Democratic presidential nominee, who was diagnosed with pneumonia last week, will address participants in the morning workshop, her campaign said in a press release Tuesday.

    Clinton was scheduled to speak Thursday night at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Annual Awards Gala but it's not clear if she will still attend. 

    Clinton abruptly left a 9-11 anniversary event Sunday in New York and was seen on video stumbling and being held up by aides. After roughly 90 minutes of silence from her campaign, aides said Clinton left because she was overheated. Several hours later, her doctor acknowledged she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days earlier.

    Clinton spent Monday at her home in Chappaqua, New York, after canceling a fundraising trip in California. 

    In a text message to supporters Monday night, Clinton wrote: "Like anyone who's ever been home sick from work, I'm just anxious to get back out there."

    In her first comments about her health condition since the dizzy spell, Clinton said in a phone interview on CNN late Monday that she pressed on with a busy campaign schedule because she didn't think the pneumonia was "going to be that big a deal."

    "I was supposed to rest five days -- that's what they told me on Friday -- and I didn't follow that very wise advice," Clinton said.

    "So I just want to get this over and done with and get back on the trail as soon as possible," she said.

    In a move aimed at quieting questions about transparency, Clinton said she would be releasing more medical information this week. Her campaign has sought to turn the matter around on Republican opponent Donald Trump, who has released only a glowing letter from his doctor, though the billionaire real estate mogul says that he, too, plans to make public additional information in the coming days.

    Trump showed surprising restraint regarding Clinton's health. He wished her well and did not repeat questions he has previously raised about whether the former secretary of state has the strength and stamina to be president.
