Travelers with luggage walking in the airport who are at risk of global health and travel-related maladies.

In today's connected world, diseases don't respect borders. For instance, the Ebola and Zika viruses are two recent examples of dangerous diseases that can pose a serious threat to people who've traveled to certain areas. So it's important for individuals and physicians to be aware of global health threats.

At Yale Medicine, our emergency medicine physicians study health problems across the world to understand how such interconnected problems affect the health of people abroad and here in the United States. This experience equips them with exceptional skill and insight to deliver superior emergency care.
