Health warnings for travelers (chikungunya, anyone?)

Returning to the U.S. last month I found some interesting public health information on the airport TV monitors: warnings about MERS, Dengue fever, chickungunya, even measles.

So, if you are traveling abroad this summer (or at any time) safe travels! If you are returning to the United States or here as a visitor: welcome. Don't be scared by the warnings on the monitors you'll read as you stand in the customs line. View them as a reminder that public health is global health and that many national and international organizations and governments are working to ensure our health.
