Would you like to know more about what you need to do to stay healthy while traveling abroad? Do you have questions about how to protect yourself from travel-related health risks, such as malaria? If so, plan to attend the next Prescriptions for Health presentation—Preparing for International Travel featuring Dr. Michael Rowland.
The presentation will take place on Tuesday, June 29, from 6–7:15 p.m. in the Chisholm Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital and includes light refreshments. Dr. Rowland will cover a variety of travel medicine issues with an emphasis on tropical diseases such as malaria and yellow fever. He will also describe the scope of services now available at the Franklin Memorial Hospital Travel Medicine Clinic. There will be ample time for questions and answers.
“The risks one may encounter vary widely from country to country, and even locally within a country,” said Dr. Rowland. “While there is a great deal of general information available on the Web, most travelers find it helpful to have an experienced physician guide them through the maze of information.”
Dr. Rowland has 30 years of medical experience including travel and work around the globe, and has provided care to immigrant workers from outside the U.S. since 1987.
Prescriptions for Health is open to the public and free of charge. Registration for the presentation is required, as space is limited. For more information or to register call Jodi Cordes at 779-2451 or 1-800-398-6031, ext. 2451.
