Add ProHealth Care's International Travel Medicine Services to your travel checklist

Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, studying abroad or on a global mission, ProHealth Care’s International Travel Medicine services can help reduce your risk of illness while you’re away.

On average, up to 50 percent of people will experience some type of health problem when traveling. Chronic conditions and pregnancy can pose added complications, as well. Even healthy individuals can be affected by changes in altitude, humidity, temperature, water quality and sanitary conditions.

During the planning stages of your trip, make an appointment with ProHealth’s travel medicine team for a consultation that includes:

  • Destination-specific preventive advice to reduce your health risks
  • Administration of required or recommended vaccines
  • Assessment of current health
  • Necessary written materials for international travel

Those who should consider travel medicine services include international travelers, cruise travelers, Peace Corps members, disaster relief volunteers and missionaries. 

Consultation appointments should be scheduled at least four weeks prior to departure to allow for immunizations, if needed. To schedule an appointment, call 262-928-5900.
