Article Extract

The 8th Conference of the International Society of Travel Medicine (CISTM8), attended by over 2000 delegates, was held in New York City on 7 to 11 May 2003. The ‘Big Apple’, a past major port of entry to the USA for millions of immigrants and refugees and now visited by millions of tourists and business people, provided an appropriate setting for a travel medicine conference as a symbol of today’s ‘global mobility’.
