Hit me with your best shot

February 11, 2015 - 1:14pm
Traveling the world is an awesome experience. However, getting ready to do so can be a challenge. Before I embarked on the Spartans Will.360 trip a few years ago, there was so much to do. I had to figure out how to put eight weeks of travel into carryon luggage. We had to figure out flights and lodging. I drove to Chicago at the last minute to pick up delayed visas from the Chinese Consulate. Computers needed to be updated and files created. Other projects had to be finished or handed off. Oh, and then there was the visit to the travel clinic at the health center where preparing for world travel was a pain - literally. My poor arms were on the receiving end of polio, yellow fever, hepatitis A and B vaccines. Thank goodness my tetanus, MMR, pneumonia and influenza shots were already up to date or I might not have been able to move my arms for weeks. I was also given medication to prevent malaria, prescriptions of regular antibiotics and some heavy duty ones too. We talked about rabies and water-borne illnesses and all sorts of other things to look out for. Holy wow - there are a lot of ways to get sick around the world.

Kimberly Mitcham: A pediatrician's view on vaccines

February 11, 2015 - 10:54am
You can't open a newspaper or a social media site today without seeing some story about vaccinations. As a pediatrician, I'm sure this topic is hotly debated in every clinic across the country where providers care for children. As a mother, I have made the decision to vaccinate my own three children, and as a provider I have encouraged other parents to do the same (a question I frequently get asked by parents).
