Paving the Way Conference

Medical interpreters benefit from discussing the challenges of their daily work, as well as the range of linguistic and cultural issues affecting the field. Paving the Way to Health Care Access, two days of educational conference, sponsored by UMass Chan Medical School's MassAHEC Network, provides this opportunity.

This continuing education event is open to those who have previously attended our medical interpreter training programs and those who work with medical interpreters:

  • Medical interpreters
  • Interpreter managers and coordinators
  • Members of the health care team working with interpreters

Participants choose from different workshops, each of which provides opportunities to explore specific topics and improve knowledge and skills.
