NOTIS’ Community Interpreter Division and Seattle Children’s Hospital present
Medical Genetics III 2017
Interpreters now find themselves discussing genetics in many different settings: pre-natal appointments, discussions about options for cancer care, risk assessments related to early-onset Alzheimers, and many other areas of health care. With the ability to rapidly and inexpensively test a patient’s genome for specific genes, doctors are using genetic information to guide them in personalized medicine in regards to screening, diagnosing, treating, and counseling many of their patients.
This 2-hour class for medical interpreters will cover:
