Singapore Summer Immersion Program
Travel Clinics

After our all-day orientation, many of us had to quickly make an appointment at Student Health in order to get our immunizations before traveling. Many of us met each other to attend the travel clinic presentation. I became somewhat nervous about the diseases mentioned with travel to Southeast Asia: Typhoid, Malaria, and Japanese Encephalitis where some of the major diseases mentioned; I felt as if I was going on the Oregon Trail. However, most of us only needed Hepatitis A and Typhoid. After receiving the Hepatitis shot and typhoid vaccine pills, I was ready to leave that moment but that evening we will all be meeting the person who made this entire trip possible, Alston Gardner.
