About NCIHC

 

The National Council on Interpreting in Health Care is a multidisciplinary organization based in the United States whose mission is to promote
culturally competent professional health care interpreting as a means
to support equal access to health care for individuals with limited
English proficiency.

 

About NCIHC Members

The NCIHC is a multidisciplinary organization with
member representation in all 50 states as well as several other parts
of the world (including Japan, the Netherlands and Latin
America). NCIHC members include full-time, freelance and dual role
interpreters; health care organization staff; language agency
employees; interpreter trainers; policy makers; and consultants in the
field.  The NCIHC has over 300 members.

About the 2nd Annual NCIHC Membership Meeting
During our annual Membership Meeting, NCIHC members have the
opportunity to gather and discuss issues related to the provision of
quality interpreting services in healthcare. Unlike traditional
conferences, NCIHC holds open forum discussions led by experienced
moderators, and the data collected during these dynamic sessions is
used toward the development of NCIHC publications, presentations and
additional research. The theme for the 2nd Annual NCIHC Membership
Meeting is “Hand in Hand: Shaping the Profession Together.” Hand in
hand, we can help to shape the field.  Working together, we can
support high standards, envision the future and build plans that will
help to drive the Council and the profession forward. This year, our
annual meeting will also be held to coincide with the Southeastern
Regional Conference, making this an attractive venue for local
participants as well.
