Ever heard about “airport malaria”? Should you be worried about that “funny rash” on the Ugandan businessman? What medical advice do you give your sister who is planning a trip to Vietnam? Swaminatha Mahadevan, MD, FACEP, will identify infectious hot spots around the world and highlight must-know facts about travelers and visitors from these areas. In addition, find out what precautions travelers should consider as they plan their next great adventure abroad.
