Is there anything worse than getting sick or injured on vacation? Technically, yes there is. But at the time, it doesn’t seem like it and these health care hassles can ruin a trip! A recent article from The Daily Herald tackles the tough topic of vacation illness and provides some good tips to avoid additional pain.
