Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz, director of research at the Center for New North Carolinians, received new funding from The Weaver Foundation for the project “Promoting Sustainability: Updating the Interpreter Bank and Community Center Model.”
The Interpreter ACCESS Project is a fee-based program that provides face-to-face interpretation services for health and human service providers. The interpretation field is moving in the direction of providing video remote interpretation. To stay relevant and sustainable, this element needs to be incorporated into the Interpreter ACCESS Project. The services of a business professional will be utilized to assist with the addition and transition of this technology into our existing Interpreter program.
