Taking new actions that focus on the well-being and safety of customers and team members, American Airlines announced in late June that it has created a new Travel Health Advisory Panel that includes Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) infectious disease experts to advise on health and cleaning matters as travelers return over the summer.

The panel will include VUMC experts David Aronoff, MD, director of the Division of Infectious Diseases, and Thomas Talbot, MD, chief hospital epidemiologist. Both are national leaders in the field of infectious disease prevention. These experts will provide American with the latest information from public health authorities and scientific research, as well as advice and guidance on disease prevention, cleaning procedures and other public health matters.
