Pediatric Travel Center
Every year families all over the United States travel abroad to different countries to expose themselves to new and vibrant cultures. Unfortunately they also end up exposing themselves to infections and bacteria. It is estimated that half of all the US based vacationers visiting under-developed countries contract some form of illness during this time. The Pediatric Travel Center is dedicated to preparing families for their International trips from a health care perspective. We want you to have the best holiday possible and with our guidance, support and suggestions, you will be well prepared to make this happen.
