"Dia De Las Madres Loteria" (Mother's Day Bingo) was organized by the Mexican Consulate "Ventanilla De Salud,"and it was held at the Val Verde Community Center/Social Security Office on May 10, 2018. In attendance were approximately 150 members of the public, as well as the Mexican Consul with Staff, and the coordinator for the Secretaria De Relaciones Exteriores (Mexican Department Of Foreign Relations).

The Mexican Consulate holds monthly meetings that include speakers that share Financial, Immigration, and Health information to the community in Del Rio.

I was the Health Promotion Speaker, and I highlighted Stroke Initiatives that are being carried out by VVRMC.

In my speech I included signs and symptoms of Strokes, Life/Health risk factors that increase the likelihood of a Stroke, and what to do if you suspect you see someone showing signs and symptoms or if you yourself are experiencing symptoms.

I handed out the flyers with the FAST Acronym information, and stressed the urgency of seeking emergency medical care in a timely manner to increase the possibility of a positive outcome.
