Resources for Traveling with a Chronic Illness

At UCB, we strive to support patients to live their best lives possible, and we know getting time away from home for summer vacation or other travel needs is part of life. Whether you live with a chronic illness, are a caregiver for someone who lives with a chronic illness, or not - traveling can be stressful.

Fortunately, with a little planning, you can decrease the hassle, reduce your stress, and enjoy your trip.
