We want to spread the word so that more
people travel with good health preparation.

Travel Health 101 LLC is a company dedicated to the provision of basic travel health information for international travelers and health care providers. Our goal is to lessen the repeat work for providers in their travel clinics while giving basic common sense health information to travelers. Additionally, our company has a role in consulting with and educating health care professionals just starting to provide travel health care in their clinics.


Where does an idea come from? It can be hard to pin point inspiration but here's Lynne Bunnell's story of how she got the ball rolling for Travel Health 101.

"The original idea for the Travel Health 101™ Traveler Video grew out of my need for help.

I was running a travel clinic, seeing 5-10 travelers a day and I began to lose my voice to laryngitis. I was concerned because no one else in my clinic knew how to do pre-travel consultations. I borrowed a video camera from the health education dept of the clinic, and taped myself going through my handouts to save my voice for the patient interviews.

I apologized to my patients that I would have them watch a video, but then people said they liked it. So I kept using it even after I felt better because I found that it saved me a lot of time. I subsequently produced and marketed a smoother version of the tape in the mid-1990s and some clinics are still using that tape.

As the course and video have evolved we moved to online delivery and we are able to support many travel health care providers all over the world.

The visual format is accessible to all types of learners. The images help travelers remember the information. Some people learn best by listening and others by watching, and with our video the visual graphics are timed to reinforce the narration and engage every viewer."
