Yellen returns to Washington; questions remain after health scare

By Jonathan Spicer and Ann Saphir AMHERST, Mass./SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is back in Washington on Friday, a day after receiving emergency medical attention following a speech during which she appeared to lose concentration and which she struggled to finish. A Fed spokesperson would not comment on whether Yellen planned to see a doctor for a follow up check-up, and would not comment on her health beyond last night’s statement that she had felt dehydrated after speaking for nearly an hour at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. A Fed spokesperson said Yellen felt fine after the incident.
