Let’s break the language barrier in healthcare together
It is such a special moment for us at Canopy Innovations! After a whole lot of research and listening to your feedback, we are glad to share our new information channels. They are entirely dedicated to the challenges that the language barrier imposes on healthcare.
In here — and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram — you will find a lot of useful resources to better care for Lower English Proficiency patients. We have also crafted the Medical Spanish in 30 seconds newsletter, which is distributed weekly, for free, to subscribers (sign up for free here!) since August 21st.
There is a lot to come in the following weeks, and we are excited you decided to join us in our mission to break the language barrier in healthcare, better serving our community.
Stay tuned! And let us know should you have any suggestions or comments. :)
Last week, we hosted webinar on how to communicate a Spanish speaking patient during a physical exam. Our co-host was the American Medical Students Association (AMSA). The webinar was watched simultaneously by medical students all over the country and was led by Dr. Cynthia Santos, MD.
