If you’re planning a vacation, you don’t want to miss our next Health Check report.
When mapping out the perfect trip, we often spend a lot of time on the itinerary and finding the best airline and hotel rates. We even spend a fair amount of time figuring out what clothes to pack. But doctors say if we’re planning to leave the United States, we need to add one more “thing to do” to our list. Make a doctor’s appointment.
In this month’s Health Check report, Serese Cole sits down with Fremont Area Medical Center’s Dr. Angela Sukstorf. She is an Infectious Disease Specialist who says sitting down with your doctor to talk about your plans, your accommodations and activities - even what you plan to eat - can reduce your chances of getting sick and ruining your vacation.
Find out why Dr. Sukstorf says a doctor’s consultation is crucial before your next trip, what she says are the most common illnesses people get when they travel and where we’re most at risk for coming down with an illness.
It’s Friday, June 6th on WOWT.
