Service Learners will provide assistance in obtaining medical histories from patients and translating that information to English.
Service Learners will also provide assistance in translating medical forms written in English into Spanish for the ease of the patients.
Service Learners will also assist in translation involving doctor to patient instructions, and patient to doctor questioning, moving easily between English and Spanish.
