United in Translation on International Translation Day (30 September) (2)

28 September, 2021

Excellent point Chris,

Just back from a cultural competencies workshop for healthcare professionals this gives a moment to emphasize in the community in Qatar at Education City. Will check what Weill Cornell Medicine Qatar maybe doing on celebrating it as they have a program for training medical interpreters since we are a very diverse population in the country (in the healthcare as well as the patients)

Best,

Tatjana
