In CCHI’s latest newsletter, they recognize UMTIA along with Allina Health for contributing to interpreter professional development. UMTIA and Allina hosted an “Infection Control Workshop” in December 2017, and the profits were donated towards CCHI’s Discover HCI Scholarship fund. UMTIA is recognized for being “a true testament to how interpreters themselves support the profession and their colleagues.” Congrats on this well-deserved recognition, UMTIA!
Additionally, Minnesota Hmong interpreter, Ye Yang, was one of the recipients of the 2017 scholarships. Congrats to Ye Yang for going on to earn the CoreCHI™ credential in February of this year! See the graphic above for details on how to apply for the 2018 scholarships.
To read more about both of these things, you can see the full CCHI March-April newsletter here!
It is clear that there are great things happening in the translation & interpretation field in MN!
