Travel Medicine

Healthy travel today means more planning and preparation than most business and vacation travelers are used to, particularly when visiting foreign countries. The more we travel, the more we are exposed to diseases our bodies have never had to fight before. Malaria, Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Hepatitis, Cholera and many other dangerous diseases are epidemic in many parts of our shrinking world.
