Medical Interpreting:

Many of the first generation Korean Americans needs an interpreter for doctor’s visits and hospital appointments.
While the hospitals provide the patients with a Korean interpreter, often the interpreter’s language proficiency either in Korean or in English is not adequate, resulting in frustration and inaccurate medical information from the doctors.

KAAC is partnering with some of the medical centers in the Chicago area to improve the quality of Korean medical interpreters to ensure patient safety and quality of care.
