On Saturday, July 27, Abinash Virk, M.D., will join us to discuss the Mayo Clinic Travel Clinic. Different destinations around the world have different recommendations and sometimes requirements for vaccines and pre-travel medications. Did you know you might be denied access to certain countries or areas if you cannot provide proof of certain vaccinations? We’ll also discuss other travel recommendations such as mosquito protection, safety of food and water, and altitude sickness. Also, this week’s Myth or Matter of Fact: Traveler’s diarrhea can be caused by stress.
Note: You can listen to the program LIVE Saturdays at 9 am CT on I Heart Radio via KROC AM. The show is taped for rebroadcast by some affiliates. On Twitter follow #mayoradio and tweet your questions.
