Hillary Clinton’s campaign plans to release more medical information this week after the Democratic presidential nominee’s diagnosis of pneumonia was confirmed Sunday by her Westchester County, N.Y., physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack.
A statement from Bardack, a Mount Kisco internist, ended a period of confusion Sunday after Clinton attended the 9/11 memorial ceremony at Ground Zero but left because she was feeling unwell around 9:30 a.m. ET.
Barack has been described as the longtime physician of Clinton, who returned to her Chappaqua home after the health episode Sunday.
Here are some things to know about Bardack’s professional history:
