If you are traveling abroad, whether it be to China on business, Africa for charity-related work or to Mexico for a honeymoon, you should consider consulting the International Travelers' Clinic at Nashoba Valley Medical Center.
Robert Voight, MD, medical director of the International Travelers' Clinic, has provided evaluation and counseling to international travelers since 1987. Voight is board certified in internal medicine and occupational medicine and has been awarded the Certificate of Knowledge in Travel Medicine by the International Society of Traveler Medicine. The International Travelers' Clinic provides pre-travel evaluation, counseling and immunizations for international travelers.
The specialty of travel medicine was developed to prepare and protect the increasing number of people who travel, for business or pleasure, to those international destinations that are still considered biological risks. Immunizations are available to protect against diseases such as typhoid, polio, yellow fever, hepatitis, meningitis and others. Over one million people continue to lose their lives to malaria each year but to protect against that disease, for example, immunization is simply not enough. A traveller must take pills before, during and after the trip to an area where malaria is prevalent. This is how an expert in the field of travel medicine can help you protect yourself from infectious disease.
If you are traveling abroad, the International Travelers' Clinic at Nashoba Valley Medical Center can help you prepare for your business travels or that round-the-world trip of a lifetime.
