Obama to join Yahoo in first-ever Hispanic-focused roundtable

Yahoo will host the first-ever Hispanic-focused online roundtable with President Obama, the company announced Wednesday.

The discussion will be streamed live from the White House on Sept. 28. Jose Siade, Yahoo’s editor-in-chief for U.S. Hispanic and Latin America, will lead the conversation, which will focus on the economy, education, healthcare and immigration.

Users can submit questions by visiting Yahoo's Spanish language site. The event will stream in both English and Spanish. 

AOL Latino / HuffPost Latino Voices and MSN Latino will also participate in the roundtable.

The event is Obama's latest effort to engage the public online, but his first Hispanic-focused online event. He participated in a Twitter town hall in July and a Facebook town hall in April. A LinkedIn town hall is scheduled for two days before the Yahoo event.
