One of the drawbacks in traveling to foreign countries is the possibility of getting sick, consequently, having a portion of your vacation ruined. Jaclyn C. Stevenson, a writer for GoNOMAD.com, discusses Dr.Stuart Rose’s book, International Health Guide, in her article; Travel Doctor Offers Rx for a Safer World.
“Rose is internationally known in the world of travel medicine, the specialty of health and safety abroad.
He’s the creator, author and editor of the International Travel Health Guide, a comprehensive wellness resource for all types of travelers now in its 13th edition, and owner of a travel health company that specializes in products for all types of travelers, including those attracted to extreme and alternative trips.
Rose said his fascination with travel medicine began in medical school, during an elective course that centered on tropical diseases. He later interned at two African hospitals, in Ethiopia and Tanzania, where he was responsible for treating a number of ailments that otherwise, he likely would have never seen in his career.”
