A FEW WORDS FROM NIMIA PRESIDENT MARIA SCHWIETER

“Our hopes are that this conference will serve as a platform for the enhancement of professional standards and state policy formation centered on medical interpretation and its relationship to safe practice.  It will also highlight the need for legislators, interpreters, educators, and health care administrators in addressing barriers faced by non-English and limited English proficient patients.  The intended outcome is to decrease health disparities and increase access to healthcare for all Indiana residents.  Please join us!”
