National Naval Medical Center checkup for Obama
WASHINGTON — President Obama has finished his first medical checkup as president and knows when he’s supposed to go see the doctor again — when he’s 50.
The 48-year-old commander in chief had a physical examination Sunday at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. His last one was in January 2007, when he was an Illinois senator.
Dr. Jeffrey Kuhlman, who heads the White House medical unit, conducted the exam. It lasted about 90 minutes. The White House is expected to release results later Sunday.
Obama was told to come back in August 2011 — after he hits the half-century mark — for his next checkup.
Obama also met with 12 members of the military who were receiving treatment at the medical center for injuries they suffered while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
