New grant, new focus:

Project Level Up: Advancing Healthcare Interpreter Competencies aims to increase the number of working interpreters who are trained and qualified to interpret in healthcare settings, reducing the gaps in equity in healthcare communication for Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and DeafBlind, individuals. Project Level Up will offer a cohort track and self-directed track. Both tracks include foci on interpreting via VRI in healthcare settings, cultural competency, and working with individuals that are “hard to serve” as defined by RSA. Over the 5-year project, 175 interpreters will complete the Cohort Track, and it is anticipated that over 3000 working interpreters will participate in the self-directed track. A community of practice will be available to all participants to foster ongoing discussion, reflection, and learning. With these two tracks, the quality and quantity of interpreters qualified to interpret for individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing and DeafBlind, and individuals in healthcare settings will be increased.
