Dr Deb The Travel Doctor
Doctors - Brisbane, QLD
Overseas Travel is more than visiting wonderful places, tasting exotic foods and encountering different people, it might also mean contracting a dangerous disease.
Dr Deborah Mills is the medical director of the Dr Deb's clinics.
She has worked as a Travel Doctor since 1988 - in the days when no- one even knew what a travel doctor was. She is one of the pioneers of Travel Medicine in Queensland, and hence, is often known as Dr Deb - THE Travel Doctor.
She is a regular on radio and television, and has been widely published on the subject of travellers health. Her book "Travelling Well - The 'must-have' guide to enjoying good health while you travel" is now in its 18th edition, with over 185,000 copies in print.
As well as studying infectious diseases in Australia and many corners of the globe, she draws from her own travel experiences on all 7 continents, to ensure travellers get the critical 'been-there-done- that' information that they need to travel with confidence and make the most of their journeys,.
