Presidents’ Health and Medical Confidentiality

Klitzman, Robert L.

With the recent election of Joe Biden Jr, who is currently 78 years old and will be the oldest person inaugurated as US President, potential issues related to presidential health may emerge along with dilemmas concerning the privacy and confidentiality of the president’s medical in- formation. Questions arise about what information the public has a right to know about a president’s health and who should decide and how. These issues require attention and informed public and professional discussion.
