What parent doesn't lay awake at night worrying about what dread disease their college student might contract while studying biology in the jungles of Central America? And sure enough, we got that phone call after our daughter was living in Costa Rica for three months. She was mysteriously ill and what did I suggest?
Well, this is where Norman Bizon, PA and travel health specialist came to our rescue. Norman had seen Laura in his travel clinic for inoculations and health screening prior to her departure.
Norman returned my evening phone call, quizzed me on symptoms and directed our daughter to take an antibiotic from the health kit she took with her for her long stay. She was much improved within 30 hours and I was able to sleep through the night again!
