Health and Safety
It is important to invest some time well before departure familiarizing yourself with special health issues related to your country/continent of destination, or caring for yourself in the light of a personal health condition. Understanding the basics of your medical insurance coverage while abroad is an essential piece. Likewise, becoming informed about safety abroad is important. Your pre-departure and on-site orientations will seek to provide important information and guidance on these issues, but invest some personal time becoming informed.
