More than 60 trained interpreters participate in this network throughout the year to gain insights on current happenings and opportunities in the medical interpretation field.


 The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation hosts a network of interpreters who have successfully passed at least a basic, 40-hour training course using a nationally recognized curriculum such as "Bridging the Gap." The group is organized to support and further the professionalism and quality of interpretation services provided in our community.

Meetings are held at least quarterly in February, May, August, and November on the second Friday at noon. Meeting dates and times are subject to change to accommodate training opportunities and webinars. For information on upcoming classes, email Raquel A.
