Executive’s Daughter gets 41 million dollar award for Travel Related Illness

The New York Post published a story of a  jury award to a family of 41 million dollars for a

child who acquired a form of encephalitis while on a school trip to the Far East.This illustrates

the liability that organizations occur when they take groups traveling out of the USA. This

underscores the importance of having such groups visit Travel Medicine Clinics prior

to such trips. This most importantly helps to insure the safety of the traveler and

secondly to protect the organization.
