Travel Medicine

Traveling with inadequate or no vaccines, or preventative medications may expose you to disease threats that you are not protected against. This may lead to loss of productivity during crucial business trips or get in the way of fully enjoying your leisure trip.
Many travel for business purposes, study abroad, adventure group trips, medical missions or military assignments.
An appreciable amount of time, money and energy is devoted towards planning and orchestrating trips abroad.
Many Travelers are unaware of the harmful risks of exposure to vaccine preventable diseases and other tropical infectious diseases in developing countries that can cause serious illnesses.

An estimated 30 million US residents travel to developing countries each year based on Office of Travel and Tourism reports.
