In the past, there has been a tradition of holding a potluck lunch to celebrate the end of the spring semester.  Due to the COVID situation, some were not comfortable with having one at this time. Instead, you are invited to bring your own lunch to an end of semester presentation about practical and ethical use of translation and interpretation services in your clinical practice – something we should all be well informed about. Bottled water and a sweet treat (some GF available) will be provided to M.A. SLP graduate students, CLiFs, and SLHC staff.

Participants can request accommodations by emailing Pramila Patel.  For sign language interpreting and real-time captioning requests please email no later than Monday, April 18th.
