Aimee Copeland, the University of West Georgia graduate student who survived a rare flesh-eating bacteria, will be a guest on journalist Katie Couric's new talk show "Katie."
Couric's interview with the 24-year-old Snellville resident will air on Sept. 11, one day after the show launches at 3 p.m. on Channel 2 (ABC).
Show representatives announced Tuesday that with the help of her prosthetics, Copeland will walk onto the stage.
Copeland contracted the rare infection in May after falling from a zip line and gashing her leg. Doctors had to amputate both hands, her left leg and right foot. She returned home last week after three months in the hospital and a rehabilitation clinic.
Still facing a rigorous recovery process, Copeland will discuss her story of survival.
Airing weekdays, the syndicated "Katie" premieres Sept. 10, when its guests will include Jessica Simpson and Sheryl Crow.
