The Medical Interpreting Task Force (MITF) | CEUs: 0.15 PS
Held in Snoqualmie Room 1 & 2
Description: The goal of the Medical Interpreting Task Force (MITF) is to work towards quality communication access in medical settings for Deaf, hard of hearing, and DeafBlind people in Washington state. During this presentation, we will be updating the community on our work to date and providing tools for community members to support this work. The format will be a panel presentation followed by an opportunity for audience Q & A.
The MITF is an independent, statewide coalition of stakeholders interested in assuring communication access for Deaf, hard-of-hearing and DeafBlind people in medical settings, in the state of Washington. The group was formed in the early Spring of 2012 as leaders in the Community agreed this had reached a crisis point. While we have achieved significant steps forward, our work is not complete.
