Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – As the founder of HealthCare Resources Puerto Vallarta, Pamela Thompson is committed to providing locals and visitors with the most up-to-date health information and services. Here’s her May 2023 newsletter, which covers all the latest health news and clinics.

Happy Spring! We say good-bye to most of our winter snowbirds and we wish them a good summer. Life goes on here during the summer months! One just needs to move a bit slower with the heat and humidity. Best advice: STAY HYDRATED.

There are several locations and you must have an order from me.

SPEAKERS PROGRAMS

Diana Miramontes, Nutritionist/Dietician
May 24, 2023 AT 9:00 am

If you have attended any of her programs, you know she is stellar! On May 24 she will be doing a presentation on how to get vitamins and minerals (good ones!) in the summer months with cool, refreshing smoothies and other healthy yummies. No charge. RSVP: pamela(at)healthcareresourcespv.com. We hope to see you there!

WOMEN’S CHECK-UP SPECIAL

We have a really great, complete and economical Women’s Check-up and for the month of May, we are offering a 10 percent discount! I had posted on Facebook with a big response but we still have plenty of spaces left. If you are interested in participating, please email me and I will send the details. We also have a good Men’s check-up as well.

Vallarta has a shortage on specific specialists. We work with two great endocrinologists but they have become so popular, it is several months for an appointment! Last month, thankfully we had a new endocrinologist move to Vallarta, Dr. Tirado. Do you need to see an endocrinologist for issues? Diabetes, thyroid issues and much more. If you would like an appointment, please email me your request.

And speaking of long waits – for dermatologists – I work with five and appointments have been averaging 2 to 5 months out! If you are returning in the fall, I suggest scheduling your dermatology appointment this summer! Let me know.

SUMMER STUFF

With the summer months, there is more time to do some things that in the high season, we are not able to do. Several years ago (pre-Covid) during the summer months we would go to the movies once a week – discounted day and nice and cool. I will start that again.

Activities
Are you interested in doing a class? Decopauge, learn to crochet, making a Catrina doll and much more. I will try to get some things organized and out there.

Do you have an idea for a group activity? Can you do one yourself? Send on the info and let’s see what we can do! I am wide open for ideas!

I am happy to accept anything from gently used clothes, baby layette items, smaller items for a bazaar, craft supplies (for kids), coloring books, crayons, medical supplies – I find a home for pretty much anything. If you have anything, you can contact me and we will gratefully accept.

I also post events, items, etc on my Facebook page.
