Hero’s of Mexico’s Independence 1810-1821 Grow by 2

It is believed that the confusion began in 1925 when 12 urns holding remains of the founding fathers (and mother) were sealed and moved to crypts at the Independence monument. Twelve names of the independence activists were inscribed on the monument.

In preparation of the upcoming Independence celebrations, the urns were removed with great care and ceremony last May. It was determined that a thorough study would be done of the bones to insure that none were mislabeled in the last two centuries.

Experts spent more than two months studying the skeletal remains and have concluded that there are 14 sets of remains of the hero’s of Mexico’s 1810-1821 Independence War. “Undoubtedly there are 14 bodies there. There’s no doubt about that,” Education Secretary Alonso Lujambio said.

The two unidentified remains are of Pedro Moreno and Victor Rosales who died fighting Spain in 1817 in western Mexico. Though well known historic figures, they are not as well known as hero’s Miguel Hidalgo and Ignacio Allende.

A Military ceremony and parade will be held tomorrow and the urns will be taken from Chapultepec Castle to the National Palace where they will remain on display until they are placed back in the Independence monument in 2011.

After 200 years, Moreno and Rosales will finally get what Mexico’s national anthem promises those who defend their country: “a tomb of honour for them.”

¿Su estado de salud le mantiene sin seguro? Ya no debe ser así.

Millones de estadounidenses, incluidos muchos latinos, han sido descalificados o ya no han podido costear el seguro médico debido a su estado de salud o por alguna enfermedad. El gobierno federal se encuentra en el proceso de detener esta forma de discriminación creando opciones más costeables de seguro médico para las personas en esta situación. 

Hasta el 2014, el “Plan de Seguro para Personas con Condiciones Preexistentes” (PCIP, por sus siglas en inglés), podría ayudar a cualquier persona en el país legalmente que no haya contado con seguro médico por lo menos seis meses a causa de su estado de salud. Si usted es elegible para este plan, se le garantizará acceso a un paquete integral de prestaciones, incluyendo atención primaria y especializada, acceso a atención hospitalaria y a medicamentos con receta pagando los mismos precios que los que una aseguradora garantiza a una persona catalogada de buena salud. 

Si usted conoce a alguien elegible para el Plan de Seguro de Condiciones Preexistentes (PCIP) por favor, anímelo a solicitar esta cobertura lo antes posible. Algunos estados ya han iniciado sus propios planes de seguro de condiciones preexistentes. El gobierno federal también inició la aceptación de solicitudes de personas con condiciones preexistentes el 1 de agosto de 2010. Sin embargo, el número de planes disponibles quizás sea limitado, así que debe hacer ya su solicitud.

Para aprender cómo hacer su solicitud y para descargarla en español, visite los Servicios Humanos y de Salud.

Hispanic Transplant Program Expands to Add Livers

The Hispanic Transplant program at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital is expanding from its initial beginnings of kidney transplants to include liver transplants in order to meet the growing need within the Hispanic Community. Among the Hispanic community there is a higher incidence of conditions that lead to liver disease including obesity and hepatitis.

Last year alone there were 24 kidney transplants done at Northwestern. The Medical staff at Northwestern speak Spanish and work hard towards dispelling common myths about transplants and living donors within the Hispanic community.
