Hillary Clinton released new information about her health September 14, 2016 as she recuperated from a diagnosis of “mild, non-contagious” pneumonia, with her doctor stressing she remains healthy overall and “fit to serve” as president. Pressure had mounted for the campaign to release information about the Democratic White House nominee’s medical status after she fell ill at a 9/11 memorial event on Sunday, and it was disclosed that she had pneumonia. The former secretary of state, 68, “continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States,” her personal physician Lisa Bardack wrote in a detailed, two-page “summary update” on Clinton’s health.
