VHIO provided interpretation services at Regeneration Church. Over 300-400 people came so we deem it to be pretty successful. VHIO members helped out with registration and interpreted for screenings (blood pressure, BMI, eyes), flu shot immunization, and at the HealthPAC workshop.
Kristine, one of our Vietnamese volunteers, was also asked what Hepatitis B was and so, had the chance to apply Decal material she learned in a real-life situation!
Since there not many Chinese speaking patients who needed interpreters, our Chinese volunteers helped out with directing patients to screening, serving food among other tasks.
VHIO interpreters collaborated with Partners in D and Project Brown Bag for the first time on Saturday, November 12. The event was a success! We helped plenty of patients and the majority of these seniors does not speak English. The patients were so grateful for the services provided, and they would love for Parnters in D and Project Brown Bag to come back.
Professional interpreters were present; in addition to providing interpretation services, VHIO was able to gain exposure to and learn from other interpreters.
New volunteers may find our Mt. Zion clinic flow powerpoint useful. Please look over it before your first clinic, and it may be helpful to look at it your first few times to familiarize yourself.
Don’t hesistate to ask us if you have questions during clinic! Special thanks to clinic coordinators Judy Lim and Angela Chen for compiling this useful guide.
