Health Awareness

Traveling abroad imposes additional risks to one’s health. Travelers will find themselves exposed to new foods, climates, and other environmental factors that their biological system is not used to. Our bodies will naturally begin to adjust to the new environment, however this process takes time. It is important that you consider the following recommendations on how to stay healthy, both physically and mentally, when encountering these changes. Your health will have a significant impact on your experience in the host culture. Maintaining good health will help to ensure you are able to fully participate in the academic program and local activities.
