HISPANIC HEALTH ADVOCATE

This program, designed to provide interpretation services to the Spanish-speaking population in Fort Wayne and the surrounding area, is gaining many new clients because even though some people speak enough English to get along on a daily basis, they don’t want to risk miscommunication with regard to their medical treatment. A caseworker accompanies the client to the doctor’s office and interprets the entire conversation between the care provider and the client. Clients usually learn about the program through word of mouth, and some clinics provide pamphlets containing information about the program.
