Joe Harkins, Associate Editor of the Medical Tourism Association Journal, joins Mike and Joyce to talk about the growth of Medical tourism — going outside your home country for health care.
Nearly a million Americans went outside the country for necessary health care in 2013. Employers who provide health care for their employees are taking advantage of medical tourism to save money. One employer has saved $10 million while providing quality health care for their employees.
ABC’s Nightline reported on the economic advantages of medical tourism. http://www.medicaltourismcongress.com/blog/us-companies-consider-medical-tourism/
Joe speaks with Joyce and Mike about what people go outside the U.S. or other countries, and what destinations provide the best care.

Award winning writer and journalist, and author of Overbooked: The Exploding Business of travel and Tourism, Elizabeth Becker describes both the global importance of the travel and tourism business, but also the challenges and problems created by that industry. Elizabeth Becker points out how travel and tourism is possibly the largest, yet most ignored industry in the world.. Elizabeth Becker provides information on how the indstry is still not even considered a business by many, resulting in it not being taken seriously by governments, writers, and travelers themselves. Elizabeth points out the three major areas of tourism, in the form of cultural, consumer, and nature destinations. She also discusses the new gigantic tourist market in China, as well as the old tourist giant USA. In an industry where the challenges include environmental and building deterioration, worker exploitation, and government failures, this is an industry that needs a closer examination. Elizabeth Becker pulls back the curtain on the enormous global travel and tourism industry.

George Neary comes to us from Hartford, Connecticut where his interests in history and preservation originated. He chose Miami Beach as home after being introduced to the Tropics when he was a former Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines from 1973-75. His next venture would be marked by a stark contrast in weather while working in New York for 20 years. He worked for AFS International/Intercultural Programs. He then worked as Director of US Marketing and Sales.
George moved to Miami Beach to manage Flamingo Terrace Enterprises.
His first big project was Art Deco Weekend 1992. That’s where the very seed of tourism began!
There would be other successes working with Michael Kinerk and Matti Bower, long time chairs overseeing 8 Art Deco Weekends and creating more historic districts for Miami Beach. Miami Beach became a world-wide phenomenon and the number 1 tourist destination.
In 1998 the Greater Miami Convention & Visitor’s Bureau hired George to oversee their heritage and cultural tourism efforts.
He also oversees the Bureau’s gay & lesbian marketing efforts to promote Miami as the premier LGBT destination. George serves on the Board of the Miami Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and The Gay Pride Committee (who plan the largest LGBT event in Miami-Dade, attracting more than 80,000 attendees this past year.) He was a founding Board member of Miami Beach’s Mayor Matti Bower’s LGBT business committee for 2 years. He was awarded the President’s award from the Miami-Dade Gay Chamber, the organization’s highest award.
He has also been a member of the Miami Beach Chamber since 1993. He has helped developed The Museum Mile, a Chamber/Bureau cultural program involving Miami Beach’s 5 museums; and holds the very first Miami Beach Chamber INcard ever issued.
