I spent almost 3 years working at MCHC as a Medical Language Interpreter. It was a most rewarding experience. I wouldn't trade that period of my life for anything else. Children and families served at MCHC come from different cultures and walks of life and come to depend on MCHC to bridge, not only language barriers (as was my role), but many other factors the consortium provides as a coordinated system. On my interpreting role, I worked hand i hand with doctors, nurses, therapists and schools. I had the joy to watch children fight and conquer a higher level of development, which otherwise may have been unattainable. We went wherever it was necessary: doctor's offices, homes, schools, hospitals... INteracting with MCHC capable and dedicated staff was a true joy.
