Interpreting Health

Image

Read here for an article on Emory University’s Volunteer Medical Interpretation Services (EUVMIS), which is one of the first service-learning programs in America that trains graduate and undergraduate students as medical interpreters!  It was created and developed by Eduardo Garcia ’13 when his grandmother had difficulties with the US medical system after coming here from Mexico.  It is an incredible program that has changed the lives of many and hopefully will spread across the rest of the country!

Congratulations to Eddie and Trisha (one of the other founders who is pictured above) on this amazing program and for being profiled in Emory Health Magazine!  You deserve it!
