Not much is worse than you or a family member getting sick while on vacation.
What do you do – especially in a foreign country or an exotic destination and the nearest medical facility is hours away?
Can you prepare before you leave? You bet you can.
Since the beginning of “Let’s Talk Travel with AAA” (1993), one of the most popular shows continues to be the annual “How To Stay Healthy While Traveling” with Dr. John Goldman, an internal medicine and infectious disease physician at UPMC Pinnacle and also heads up the UPMC PinnacleHealth Travel Clinic.
Dr. Goldman will be my “Let’s Talk Travel with AAA” guest co-host Saturday, February 2nd, 11am-12pm on WHP580.
Dr. Goldman will talk about the most up-to-date medical information available and give expert advice on how to stay healthy while traveling.
When traveling – prevention is key.
Always wash your hands thoroughly and frequently with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer) to prevent the spread of illness. And remember – if your travels take you to a Third World Country – “If you can’t cook it, boil it, or peel it – then forget it.”
For information on travel health and any vaccinations you may need contact the UPMC PinnacleHealth Travel Clinic at 717-614-4420.
