Sudden critical illness is unpredictable. It can become a tragedy for you or your family if you are not prepared in a strange country.
Having a prearranged plan on hand for dealing with a medical emergency can be life-saving. Should I get care in Vietnam immediately? Should I arrange an evacuation? What do I need to know and have for the very complex evacuation procedure? And who is best medically to help?
We will help prepare you and your family with accurate information to turn a dangerous situation survivable into a good outcome.
In this workshop, we will provide you with information and insights on how to best manage medical emergencies as an expat.
We will also provide you with a card with information to always carry with you.
Join us for a morning of optimizing safety for you and your family.
