Medical Interpretation

Happy Monday, and welcome to Medical Mondays! As some of you may know, I used to volunteer as a medical interpreter and patient advocate at a student-run free clinic in California. Even after I graduated from college, I’d sneak back there on the weekends to help out whenever I was free. :]
