Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to take questions this afternoon from reporters about her use of a private email account while she served as secretary of state.

Joining us in the studio today for Medical Monday is Dr. Cliff Connery. He’s the medical director for the Dyson Center for Cancer Care at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, and medical practice director for HealthQuest’s Division of Thoracic Oncology.
