Hillary Clinton will make an awkwardly timed appearance in the upcoming issue of Women’s Health magazine.

The puff piece in the October issue comes amid the Democratic presidential nominee’s recent health scares, including nearly collapsing at a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday and being diagnosed with pneumonia over the weekend.

It features a photo of Mrs. Clinton accompanied by a short interview, during which she talks about fighting for women’s rights around the world.

“As first lady, senator, and secretary of state, I would watch world leaders roll their eyes whenever I brought up issues that affect women and girls,” Mrs. Clinton says in the interview. “But with persistence — and data — I’ve watched it dawn on more than a few men that women’s issues are their issues, too.”

Video captured Mrs. Clinton making an abrupt exit from the 9/11 memorial event, struggling to descend a curb and climb into a van under her own power.

The campaign initially said the former secretary of state was suffering from dehydration and heat exhaustion, but it later revealed that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days prior.
