Stay healthy & safeguard your personal security abroad



This course will teach you how to safeguard your health while travelling in developing countries and how to save your own ass in case of disaster (from having contingency plans prepared in advance to knowing exactly how to do damage control if the worst case scenario strikes). You'll learn how to fly solo fearlessly, from a woman who's been doing it for 25 years (even before I had any clue how to do it safely!—so you'll get to learn from my mistakes). You'll also learn everything you need to know about food and water safety, preventing mosquito-borne illness, and which medications/immunizations you need to protect yourself in every region of the world.
