Solutions to Language Barriers
Language barriers can pose significant challenges when an organization like Hennepin EMS serves multilingual clients. Fortunately, these are challenges that have clear solutions, like using professional, qualified medical interpreters.
We’re so excited to see results just like these at Hennepin EMS. Our goal here at Jeenie is language access for everyone. Because getting the best possible care is an essential right.
