Another Useful Website for Spanish Community Service Learning Students and Community Partners
Unfortunately our community partnership with Christie Clinic's OB/GYN department did not work out this semester, but I do know that health information is very important to all our community partners. For example, the employees at the Refugee Center often accompany clients to doctor visits to translate.
While translated written instructions don't take care of all of a patient's needs, it is a good tool to have. Today I received an e-mail from the Latino Partnership's list-serv telling us about this very useful site: healthinfotranslations.com.
In a grant proposal I am working on, I propose that students can use social bookmarking to help community partners in rural areas better serve their Spanish-speaking clients. This is a good example of a site that should be brought to the attention of many clinics and social service agencies in general.
