Free holiday health fact sheet available from medical charity

3 August 2001
Leading medical charity Action Research has a free fact sheet available highlighting some important areas of holiday health for anyone that might be traveling abroad. Traveling, sun care, stomach upsets, bites, vaccinations and insurance are all covered along with some recommendations of websites to visit before traveling to various countries. A new addition to the fact sheet is that of deep vein thrombosis during air travel, a condition that has been in the news over recent months. Despite the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis being one in several million, the fact sheet details important steps to take during air travel. The fact sheet is available free of charge by sending a SAE marked ‘Holiday Health’ to Action Research, Vincent House, North Parade, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2DP or from {url}www.action.org.uk/news_media/holiday_health.php{/url}.
