Faculty mentor: Daniel Leung

The aim of this study is to determine the incidence and risk factors associated with travelers’ diarrhea. To do this, I analyzed data from post-travel surveys and completed bivariate and multivariable analysis. Factors with higher association to travelers’ diarrhea based on the multivariable analysis include travelers who visited SE Asia and/or Africa, went with a larger group, visited rural/countryside regions, had a longer trip duration, and used TD prevention medications/supplements.
