Advancing Healthcare through Training for African American/Black Interpreters.
According to Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. (RID), there are only five African American/Black interpreters in Cincinnati who hold the generalist certification. This is a significant gap in workforce representation in a city where 43% of its population identifies as African American. The primary aim of this project is to increase the number of AA/Black interpreters who are RID certified in Cincinnati through the efforts of the community of practice.
