Clinic offers better shot at healthy travel

There’s nothing like getting sick on vacation for putting the fun on hold. And when you’ve invested the time and money on a much-anticipated trip abroad, losing days to illness is even more frustrating.
Spanish teacher Elyse Bergamini, 25, isn’t afraid of adventure travel, whether it involves mountain climbing or an African safari. What she’s not willing to risk is an illness that can be avoided with the right vaccination or medication.
Several weeks before her 2013 trip to Africa, the Naperville resident first visited the Edward Hospital Travel Medicine Clinic to see what she could do to stay healthy while traveling. She had learned of the clinic from her father and fellow traveler, Jay Bergamini, an oral/maxillofacial surgeon who’s on the Edward medical staff.
