I can’t wait for your next webinar.

Your webinar on Pain was very informative! So much more than just a “vocabulary list”. As interpreters, words aren’t enough. We must also understand the concepts. You not only reviewed vocabulary specific to pain, but also the pathophysiology of pain, and you did so in a very simple and concise way. I’ve been an interpreter View Full →

I just finished watching Blue Urpi’s webinar, “Get to know: Your Spine”. I thought it was very informative, easy to understand, and relevant for medical interpreters. I appreciate the way Gloria broke the categories down to causes, diagnosis, tests, and treatments.

She was patient, generous, funny, and kind while instructing us.

Practicing a profession successfully and being able to teach the principles and techniques behind it require two very different skill sets. It is rare to find an individual who can excel at both.
