  1. The presentation was extremely useful. It is amazing to realize that there are so many aspects that need to be improved in the field of healthcare interpreting.
    The challenges are enormous, but worth trying.

  2. I personally love my job, and I am always for professional growth and development. I ‘ve been working in the field for 13 years. But jobs are so few now, (there was not enough for Russian language even before pandemic), that it seems very unreasonable to make certification manditory for the interpreters . It would force someone like me to look for another job. Just because there is not enough work out there and pay is too low to cover the expenses underlying certification process .
