Oregon medical interpreting on NPR!

If you hadn’t heard already, Oregon’s health care interpreters made national news on NPR’s Morning Edition today.

Is it too optimistic to think that someday this might lead to a pay raise for all health care interpreters in recognition of our efforts and professionalism? One can hope.
