After 15 years, I have decided to retire from MD Travel Health. I started the site in the year 2000 because at that time, in the early days of the Internet, there was a need for a website that gave travelers a detailed, up-to-date review of all the health information they would need for any given country. Much has changed since then. In particular, the Centers for Disease Control has made vast improvements in their Travel Health website, available at www.cdc.gov. Most of the information that I have been providing is now available there, and I would encourage you to visit their site before going abroad.

If you are interested in either acquiring the domain name or the content of the MD Travel Health website, please contact me at goldbergid@aol.com.

Thank you for all your years of support. I've enjoyed this tremendously, and I hope you've found the website helpful.
