Center Established Through a Generous Gift from Roe Green

The establishment of the Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine was made possible by a generous $5 million gift from the Roe Green Foundation. Green, a passionate lifelong traveler, always relied on the travel medicine clinic at UH as an important resource to stay healthy before, during and after her international journeys.

Team of Board-Certified Infectious Disease Specialists

Our travel clinic is physician-led, staffed by nine UH infectious disease specialists who are on the leading edge of infectious disease research, focusing on diseases in developing countries. All are faculty of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, which ranks fifth in the nation in National Institutes of Health funding for infectious disease research.

The expert physician scientists at the Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine include long-tenured leaders within the UH Division of Infectious Disease and HIV Medicine, including Division Chair Robert A. Salata, MD and Department of Medicine Vice Chair for Education Keith B. Armitage, MD. Drs. Salata and Armitage are consistently recognized among the Best Doctors in America by U.S. News & World Report, an honor shared only by about 5 percent of the nation’s physicians.

International Travel Growth Increases Health Concerns

The Global Business Travel Association predicts U.S. business travel spending to top $310 billion in 2015, an increase of 6.2 percent. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, by 2030, the number of international tourist travelers will reach 1.8 billion.

With this steady growth in international travel, for both business and tourism, increases in infectious disease transmission continue to be a concern for travelers as well as health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Working with travel medicine health care experts before, during and after travel can provide the preventive care and education necessary to limit infection and illness.
