VHIO began as the San Francisco Hepatitis B Collaborative at Cal, and our first interpreters worked at various clinics in San Francisco Chinatown. VHIO's first language department is currently one of VHIO's largest, responding to the Bay Area's enormous demand for interpretation services in Cantonese and Mandarin.
Many members will note that the Annual Chinatown Health Fair is one of their favorite events, where our interpreters regularly work with over a hundred patients. At this event, Chinese interpreters work with a variety of different health organizations, including UOP Dental School, Sutter Health, and UCSF Pharmacy School. Over a course of 6 hours, interpreters may accompany patients through dental checkups, cholesterol and blood glucose screenings, and medication consultations.
You can reach them for your health interpretation or translation needs at email@example.com. A Chinese language description of our services is available here.
