NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Former Talk show host Montel Williams is going to speak at Vermont's Norwich University in Northfield.

Williams will address students at the military college as a Presidential Leadership Speaker on Tuesday afternoon.

Williams hosted The Montel Williams Show for more than 17 years.

He is a decorated former naval officer, inspirational speaker, author, wellness entrepreneur and advocate for patients worldwide.

Williams is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and he began his professional career in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Shortly after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, Williams established the Montel Williams MS Foundation to further the scientific study of the disease.

His Tuesday presentation at Norwich will be titled "Who Owns the Definition of You?"

The event is not open to the public.
