Interpreting for Genetics

Since 2017, NCC has worked with Cindy Roat, MPH, a healthcare interpreter trainer and course developer, to develop resources that can help improve genetics communication between healthcare providers and limited-English-proficient patients and their families by improving interpreters’ understanding of the content they are conveying.

Through this partnership, NCC has developed training curricula for healthcare interpreters, developed resources for healthcare interpreters, and will soon be launching a listserv to connect healthcare interpreters who are interested in genetics.
