Travel Bug and her friend, the Flu, went on the annual China Summer Abroad trip with SPHTM undergrad and graduate students and faculty.
Flu also enjoyed a sunny day with the group visiting historical Shanghai.
The group took Travel Bug to the CDC in Shanghai (though I am not sure the CDC appreciated this activity!).
The Travel Bug enjoyed a boat trip with Amanda Gusovsky, and a trek to the Great Wall where she posed with Amanda and Kelsey Chan-Chin.
These creatures get around! Come see us on the 24th floor if you want to take Travel Bug or one of her friends with you on your next adventure.

In June Elaine Hicks, Education Services Librarian and SPHTM liaison at Matas Health Sciences Library, accompanied a group from her church, Trinity Episcopal, on their annual medical mission trip to Jinotega, Nicaragua. SPHTM Alumni Scott Kellerman, MD (MPHTM ‘78) was also a part of the group that provides pop up clinics complete with pharmacy, dental, and veterinary services, and medical supplies. During this mission, their 21st, the group treated and helped more than 1800 people and animals in the community. The annual trip is made possible by a grant from the Doris Stone Foundation, daughter of Samuel Zemurray, whose $25,000 gift in 1912 helped found the country’s first School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, laying the groundwork for today’s Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
In 2012 the Travel Bug was busy flying around the world to tell all her friends about our centennial celebration — and what a great three-day-long party it was!!
After a well-earned winter vacation Travel Bug is ready to hit the road again, and she has a few new friends who are looking for travel companions and adventures of their own.
Students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to take a “bug” on a learning adventure. Please see Tara Brown in the Dean’s office to meet the bugs. You can reach her at email@example.com.
The Travel Bug visited China and Vietnam with GHSD professor TJ Stranova in fall 2012. She had a great time in Old Shanghai and visiting the Vietnam Military museum.
The Travel Bug made a few last minutes stops on her way to Centennial last year, but she misplaced her photos until recently. We’re glad they were found because Thailand is beautiful!
Enjoy her adventures in Thailand with SPHTM alumna Latasha A Allen, MSPH (2002).
