Each year NCIHC hosts an opportunity for the entire membership, from all across the country, to meet face-to-face, review what's been accomplished by the organization and by members throughout the past year, and discuss trends and developments that will shape the delivery of healthcare to LEP patients.
This year, as the first decade of the 21st century comes to its close, medical interpreting approaches the edge between the known and unknown. As we move into this new frontier, some questions still remain. How will technology affect our relationships with providers and patients? What changes in law and political sentiment will impact our work, either making it easier or more difficult to address the healthcare needs of LEP patients? What shape should training take, not just for novices coming into the field, but for providers, LEP communities, for interpreters who are already working but want to advance the field? And of course, how can NCIHC stay on course in fulfilling its mission as we venture into the New Frontier.
