Detroit  Consulate plays host to Semana de Salud agreement


Last Friday was a unique and momentous occasion at the Mexican Consulate in Detroit, where Consul Antonio Meza-Estrada hosted fellow consuls from four other offices. 


Received by Consul Meza were: Carlos Sada-Solana (Consul General of the Chicago office), Sergio Aguilera-Beteta (Indianapolis), José Luis Cuevas-Hilditch (Omaha) and Nathan Wolf (St. Paul).


According to Consul Meza, “This was a first in Detroit, having five Consuls together to discuss a variety of topics that concern our Mexican citizens in the United States, including health issues. Such issues are extremely important and that is why we are celebrating ‘Semana de Salud.’

L-R: Mexican Consuls Sergio Aguilera-Beteta (Indianapolis IN), Nathan Wolf (St. Paul MN), José Luis Cuevas-Hilditch (Omaha NE), Carlos Sada-Solana (Chicago IL), and Antonio Meza-Estrada (Detroit MI) gather—a first—for an important signing of a Midwest agreement to insure that Mexican migrants obtain necessary medical care while in the U.S. The signing was at the Detroit consulate.

“As you know, Semana de Salud is a Binational effort to educate our people about health and how they can get services if required.”

Gerardo Macias-García welcomed the audience, explaining that the objective of the agreement is: “to establish the cooperation between the parts, for the development of health opportunities, labor rights and educational level of their respective communities, through the organization of the Binational Health Week and implementation of community programs and services in Spanish for migrantworkers and families.”


According to General Consul Sada-Solana, such an agreement has been very successful in California for the past three years. 


On hand to sign the agreement were: Marylou Olivarez-Mason, Ezra Escudero, Rep. Steven H. Tobocman, Dr. Edgar Cruz, Luis García, Elias Gutiérrez, Rico Neller, Linda Parra, Cristina Stanley, Marisol Ibarra, John Roy Castillo, Gerardo Macias-García, Oscar de la Torre, Isabel Flores-Romero, Amelia López, Teresa Rangel, Ron Pulera, Alicia Villareal, Luz Telleria, and the five Consul, among others.
