New Continuing Education Opportunity- Yakima

Recently CTS has been made aware of a new training opportunity available for you coming up on Saturday, September 30th, 2017. This training will be held at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital, classrooms A and B, in Yakima, WA. This 5-hour workshop was developed by veteran interpreter trainer Cindy Roat and UCSF anthropologist Dr. Galen Joseph as part of a pioneering program at UCSF to help cancer genetic counselors communicate more effectively with their patients. This class is designed for interpreters who have already received basic training, and covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to Cancer Genetics
  • The Vocabulary of Cancer Genetics
    (bilingual glossaries will be made available in English-Spanish, English-Cantonese/Traditional Chinese, and English-Russian)
  • Practice interpreting
    (bilingual dialogues will be made available in English-Spanish, English-Cantonese, and English-Russian.)
  • Interpreting Challenges

Should this be something that interests you, please see the document below for additional information on this event and instructions on how to register.

Will this Training apply to my Continue Education Credits?

Five CE credits for this workshop are being requested from the ATA, from the Washington State DSHS, from the Washington State AOC, and from CCHI. ATA credits are accepted by IMIA/NBCMI. Certificates of Attendance will be awarded to all who arrive on time and stay for the entire workshop.
