Education and Prevention When Traveling to the Dominican Repulic

The Batey Foundation staff answers many health related questions from participants, everything from questions about the drinking water to current concerns about Zika infections.

Our goal is to continue to provide participants and their families with up to date information based on our experiences, reports from staff in the DR, and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control.

We are fortunate to have a friend and advisor who specializes in the field of travel medicine, Peggy Piette, owner and care provider at White Mountain Travel Health. Check out her website for information or if you are in need of travel health consultation, vaccines, or information.

Included as a handful of clear, specific, and helpful one pagers on three illnesses anyone traveling to the Dominican Republic should be aware of and take precautions to avoid. Feel free to share these resources and always circle back to us, to White Mountain Travel Health, or your primary care doctor with questions.
