OUR STORY

Vomiting illness or bacterial pink eye while backpacking in the remote wildness with kids is not fun. Especially when you have four little kids... all under the age of six. From these horrible experiences came this idea of empowering adventure travelers with the power a prescription medication Rx Kit to help treat symptoms of minor illness. 

So, lets dig in and get a little deeper and introduce you to the owners and creators of TravelMed - Emergency medicine physician, Andrew Frierson D.O. and his wife Jessica Frierson. For years, Andrew and Jessica have lead groups of people on surfing, backpacking, white water rafting and adventure trips with their wife's family's outfitting business since they were in high school (thats where their whole story all began). With their love of adventuring in God's creation as well as medicine, TravelMed was created with the goal of reducing the misery and uncertainty of minor sickness during travel thru Rx Kits. 

Now, the main purpose of TravelMed is to help adventure enthusiasts by bridging you to a telemedicine visit with a knowledgable and friendly U.S. licensed emergency room physician in order to safely prescribe you a finely tuned list of medically appropriate prescription medications recommended for your future travel plans. 

Then travel with the peace of mind knowing you #1 can help reduce symptoms of minor illness while traveling to remote areas without medical access and #2 reconnect with your ER doctor for telemedicine support while in the wilderness.
