University of California, San Diego Offers ASL Interpreter Oncology Training Program

ucsdlogoThe ASL Interpreter Oncology Training Program at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center is providing oncology training for ASL interpreters to improve the Deaf community’s access to health information.

The program consists of 13 cancer education modules offered in written English and ASL. There will be about 200 oncology terms explained in ASL with example sentences, so that participants may get a better understanding of how the terms are used. The program is all online, and requires only a few hours each month over about a year’s time. It’s free while UCSD is evaluating it. The first five participants from each state to complete the program will receive a $100 thank you gift.

A Facebook page has been set up has also been set up for this program. Click here to visit that Facebook page.
