Dr. Kohl retired Travel Ready MD to make room for Communicating Science.
She was spending more and more of her time helping colleagues use social media and blogging to share what they know. That didn't leave time to work on two projects while continuing to practice pediatrics.
Travel Ready MD has been replaced by Communicating Science.
Travel medicine also called travel health is a branch of medicine which helps people stay healthy before, during, and after international travel.
Fun fact: Emporiatrics is the latin name for travel medicine.
Dr. Kohl began her adventure into blogging and social media through travel medicine.
After earning her Certificate in Travel Medicine from the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) Dr. Kohl discovered that travelers were confused and couldn't figure out what they should do to prepare for a trip.
She stared TravelReadyMD and began blogging regularly. One thing led to another and suddenly she found herself giving advice to colleagues about how to blog, use twitter, and share medical knowledge online.
That is how Communicating Science, her new blog, was born.
Dr. Kohl loves to travel and she loves to 'talk travel' with her patients.
In her general pediatric practice she found many of her patients were getting bad advice or no advice prior to travel. So she studied, passed exams and began to help her fellow travelers.
Dr. Kohl remains very active in the travel medicine community. She is currently writing for professional journals and conducting research.
Dr. Kohl does not have a current travel medicine practice. She still practices general pediatrics but not in a location that offers travel medicine services.
However she is open to new opportunities.
Dr. Kohl is committed to 'getting the word out' about staying healthy while traveling. She would be delighted to share what she knows with the press and fellow bloggers/podcasters. After all, do you really want to miss a single moment of your trip due to illness?
