Travelers should carefully consider potential health and safety risks when traveling abroad, especially when they will be immersed in an unfamiliar culture and away from their everyday support systems. These resources can assist travelers in making informed pre-departure plans, mitigating risks, and taking ownership of their wellness.
Also be sure to review the Travel Health Preparation Guide. This document is available as a process element on all programs in M-Compass and available on Global Michigan under the "U-M Travel Guide and Subscriptions" tab. As mentioned in the guide, students are encouraged to self-disclose relevant health information, medications, allergies, and / or food preferences to program leaders, on-site staff, or other appropriate individuals.
