By Sarah Lovenheim
President Obama attends his routine presidential briefing at 9:30 a.m., followed by the economic briefing and a meeting with senior advisers.
He holds an online town hall meeting on health-care reform at Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale, Va. at 1:15 p.m. During the Q and A session, he's slated to take questions from social networking outlets, such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett will moderate the town hall.
At 4:45 p.m., Obama is expected to sign legislation awarding a Congressional Gold Medal to the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), a group of females who flew 60 million miles of non-combat military missions from 1942-1943.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs holds the daily press briefing at 12:15 p.m.
