  • Overview

    You plan to spend two weeks in Madagascar at a clinic for victims of the Tsunami. Will you actually do any good or will your presence merely be an added burden for an overstrained system? What precautions do you need to take so that you will remain a treater and not become a patient? What about patients who travel to other countries for medical treatment? Learn about both aspects of medical tourism with our guest Dr. Christie Reed. She is a Travelers' Health Science Officer at the Centers for Disease Control. She is also the GeoSentinel Project Director of the Geographic Medicine and Health Promotion Branch within the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine. As one of the editors of the CDC’s medical guide for travel medicine, Yellow Book she is a nationally recognized expert on travel medicine.
