Course Description

Presidential historical event explanations are blended with medical information easily understood by all. Until just recently, most of the U.S. presidents' illnesses were unknown to the press and the public. Did FDR's hypertension influence his preparation and negotiations at Yalta? Did Woodrow Wilson's strokes alter the League of Nations? Did JFK's Addison's Disease influence the Cold War? What U.S. Presidents were assassinated in office? We will discuss how our presidents interacted with world leaders. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the historic events and presidents' medical issues.
