Center for Travel Medicine Established Through a Generous Gift from Roe Green
The Traveler’s Clinic, the first of its kind in the country, was established in 1975 at University Hospitals in collaboration with the Division of Geographic Medicine at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. For the past 45 years, the travel clinic has provided travelers with comprehensive preventive care and educational services, international travel immunizations and prophylactic medications as well as diagnosis, treatment and counseling for those who return with parasites, malaria or other conditions seldom seen in the United States. Our specialists also evaluate and manage health problems for foreign visitors and immigrants.
As the number of international travelers has increased over the years, so has the need for these highly specialized services.
The UH travel clinic is now named the University Hospitals Roe Green Center for Travel Medicine & Global Health in recognition of philanthropist Roe Green whose enthusiasm for exploring the world inspired her to give a generous gift in 2014 to expand and endow University Hospitals’ travel medicine program. As a direct result, our program has endured and grown and today remains at the forefront of travel medicine.
Adult travel medicine services are offered at three convenient locations.
