Hospital and Clinic Training
"Effective communication between health care providers and patients is essential to facilitating access to care, reducing health disparities and medical errors, and assuring a patient’s ability to adhere to treatment plans... Competent health care language services are essential elements of an effective public health and health care delivery system in a pluralistic society."
Language Access in Healthcare Statement of Principles, NHeLP
With immigrants and refugees who do not speak English as their primary language, MLOV’s Health Program educates and organizes to improve equitable access to affordable, culturally and linguistically appropriate health-related information, services, and care. The Health Justice program is dedicated toward growing a base of engaged healthcare interpreters, providers, and administrators who are educated about language access.
