Dedicated staff who encourage happy and safe travels through a combination of travel counseling and preventative medicine including travel immunizations.
Travel medicine has become increasingly complex due to dynamic changes in global infectious disease epidemiology, changing patterns of drug resistance, and a rise in the number of travelers with chronic health conditions. Contaminated food and drink are common sources for the introduction of infection into the body. Traveler’s diarrhea is the most common illness that travelers can acquire from contaminated food and drink. High-risk destinations are the developing countries of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Other less common infectious disease risks for travelers include typhoid fever and other salmonelloses, cholera, rotavirus infections, and a variety of parasites. During a travel clinic visit, your travel medicine specialist will collect information about your itinerary and activities, as well as any underlying health conditions you may have. Then, according to your specific needs, your specialist will provide counseling on avoiding illness, self-treatment of minor illnesses, injury prevention, and specific immunizations, antimalarials, and other medications which might be appropriate for you. As active members of the International Society for Travel Medicine and the American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, it is our goal to provide high quality counseling and services to the traveling population of the New Orleans area. The field of travel medicine has expanded greatly over the last few decades. It is difficult for most health professionals to keep up with the changing epidemiology of malaria and other exotic diseases, and the availability and characteristics of new immunizations and medications for the prevention and treatment of traveler’s ailments. The Tulane University Travel Clinic can provide such interventions, as well as counseling on how to avoid problems such as traveler’s diarrhea, insect-borne diseases, altitude sickness, and difficulties due to extremes of heat and cold.
