What do travelers think about when planning to travel to a foreign country? Do thoughts turn to spectacular scenery, exotic foods, and the opportunity to experience another culture? Are there worries about diseases, insects, and water safety?
Most of us consider both parts of the picture, excited about the good prospects and nervous about the bad. We wonder how to get the most out of travel while guarding against any health hazards that might exist!
The illnesses that usually concern travelers are related to general health and fitness to travel, safety issues, water, food, insects and physical contact.
At MMC, our expert doctors provide a comprehensive medical assessment to ensure fitness for travel
