NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

Interpreting for Cancer Genetics 

Presented by Cindy Roat

What is it about? 

This seven-hour class prepares interpreters to provide accurate interpreting for encounters in which cancer genetics is being discussed. An interactive PowerPoint presentation interspersed with quizzes and polls is followed by exercises with English vocabulary and exercises in converting English cancer genetics sentences into a non-English language. Bilingual cancer genetics glossaries are provided in English-Spanish, English-Russian, and English-Traditional Chinese. Accredited for 6.5 credits with CCHI, 0.7 credits with IMIA, and 7 credits with DSHS.

What is a Webshop? A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!

When? Two sessions: Saturday, May 20th & 27th, 2023, 9am to 12:30pm, PST
