Personal Note!

Beer :)Finally a post about something other than H1N1 influenza, outbreaks of diseases and things that can hurt travelers.

I am very relieved that I passed my last medical board examination.  I am done.  Residency ends in 6 weeks and a team is already being assembled to help complete some “upgrades” on the website.  Lots of excitement!

Travel and Travel Health: On the Web

This last week of web surfing has yielded a few sites that I am very happy to share with others.  I am constantly searching the net for interesting new sites and useful information to help keep travelers and adventurers healthy.  Here’s what I found this week:

www.KidsTravelDoc.com

Anybody traveling with children should have a look at this site!  Run by a pediatrician and geared to educating parents who participate in travel and outdoor activities, this site is a wealth of information.  Topics include insects, sunburns, vaccines and travel health…all written in easy to understand fashion.  Dr. Karl Neumann, a fellow member of the Wilderness Medical Society, dispenses great advice!

www.AdventureMD.net

A travel health site geared to business, corporate and adventure travelers in the Georgia and nearby areas, this site is the place to visit should you need a travel health consultation.  AdventureMD offers membership and information to those looking to stay healthy while on adventures.  Their advisers are made up of medial professionals including those from the International Society of Travel Medicine.

www.TravelBlogExchange.com

There are a large number of “travel blogs” on the web.  Some popular, some inspirational, some informative and some opinionated.  TraveBlogExchange.com is where they all come together to share information, resources and ideas.  Recently started and growing rapidly, this community of writers and travelers offers an amazing resource for those who write and discuss travel, in all forms.  Check it out and I promise you will learn something and make some informative new friends!

How to stay healthy during flu season: AdventureDoc answers our questions

I have to include this article, written by Juliane Huang for MatadorLife.com.  I was very fortunate to be interviewed in this article and Juli did a great job on the writing.  I hope this article sheds a little information on the struggle travelers have during influenza season.  Thanks for the opportunity Juli and Matador!

New article on Matador Travel

I am very happy that MatadorTravel.com is featuring another of my articles.  I am especially proud of this one and want to thank everybody at Matador for the help and cool travel sites!

Still alive…

For the three or four people that read my site, I just wanted to say that I am still alive. I have been writing for www.Gadling.com, the travel blog for AOL.

You can check out some of the stuff I’ve written over there at this page:
