Traveling outside the United States carries the possibility of exposure to different viruses and diseases. For travelers, understanding the risks and precautions necessary to stay safe and healthy during international travel is an important part of pre-travel planning.
Dr. Steven Zell of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine is certified by the International Society of Travel Medicine and offers pre and post-travel trip consultations. He provides an in-depth analysis of one's planned itinerary, associated potential health risks and can make recommendations regarding vaccinations and prescribe medicines for protection against infections such as malaria and traveler's diarrhea.
Zell belongs to the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM), which allows him access to a network of more than 1,400 travel experts and colleagues worldwide. Through the society's network, Zell can help arrange medical care for travelers abroad or get current medical updates on global health risks in specific destinations.
