Adding MailChimp Post to existing HTML form

I have a form written in PHP and HTML that allows visitors to input information to register a new account for my service. When the user clicks "Register" the form data get's sent off to my database through an "if(isset($_POST["submit"]))" check, and the new user is logged in and redirected to the members page. Among other fields, the information that gets sent to my database includes the visitor's name and email. Can I add somewhere to my PHP code within the "if(isset($_POST["submit"]))" statement a way to also add that info to MailChimp? Example code would be much appreciated. Thanks.
