Presidential candidate Hilary Clinton made medical news this week because of a health incident that occurred when she was observing a 9/11 memorial service. There has been an intense reaction from the press and public opinion. Both Clinton and Trump are being pressured to reveal their health records.
Health issues and the presidency are nothing new. American history is filled presidents who have had medical issues. Some of these American leaders seem to have had the cooperation of the press in limiting information about their health to the American people. For example, FDR was rarely photographed in his wheelchair.
The MVCC library has interesting biographies of presidents who suffered physical problems during their terms.
