Travel Medicine – The Big Picture

Travel medicine conference The Big Picture, on 8 June 2017, will look at some of the major healthcare challenges across the globe.

The conference is taking place as part of our fourth international triennial conference, Excellence in Healthcare. 

Conference Director, Jane Chiodini, gives an overview of what to expect from the conference:

Travel Medicine – the Big Picture does exactly what it says on the tin! The meeting will give a dynamic overview of bacteria,viruses and parasites that can cause significant impact such as Zika, hepatitis C, Ebola, malaria and the most common of all to the masses – travellers’ diarrhoea. And if that wasn’t enough, there are also venomous creatures to consider! Don’t miss the opportunity to learn the latest updates from an experienced selection of speakers.
