Informational Seminar on Medical Emergencies Targets Expats

Medical Emergencies 911

By Melanie Lansing

Whether you are here one week, two months, or on a permanent basis, being prepared for a medical emergency is extremely important. Tragedy can and unfortunately does strike. Many of us don´t think ahead about how emergency medical services work in Mexico. For one, bilingual operators are not always available, and when they are, they may or may not understand you. Knowing what to do could mean the difference between life and death.

Plan to attend Peace of Mind’s seminar “How to Be Prepared for a Medical Emergency.” Key and updated information will be provided on how to plan, prepare, and respond to medical emergencies in San Miguel. Local medical and legal experts will be on hand to answer questions from the audience and provide valuable tips.

Learn in this two-hour presentation how to prepare for medical emergencies and take ownership of life situations that may seem out of your control, and reduce your risk of medical tragedy.

RSVP is required. Please reserve your seat(s) by calling Peace of Mind in San Miguel at 415 108 0810 or email See our advertisement in today’s Atención for more details. Also, be sure to bring pen and paper to take notes.

Peace of Mind is a community service project created by Melanie Lansing, and a team of San Miguel medical and legal experts for the purpose of raising awareness among the English-speaking community on medical emergency preparedness.

  • How the Mexican Red Cross responds and what you need to know.
  • The difference between Seguro Popular, IMSS, and private health insurance plans.
  • How public and private hospital services work.
  • Private hospitals and clinics in San Miguel—how do they compare?
