Our commitment to editorial integrity

The website’s goal is to provide news about our travel medicine scholarships as well as general travel health resources for trip planning purposes.

How we do it

Our travel health resources include sources such as the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Committee to Advise on Tropical Medicine and Travel (CATMAT), NaTHNaC, the International Society for Infectious Diseases' ProMED-mail service, and peer reviewed articles in medical and scientific journals.
