We are pleased to announce that VHIO will be collaborating with Partners in D, a UCSF student-run project. They have outreach clinics where student pharmacists counsel patients on their medications assess the best drug combination and help them find the most cost-effective plan under Medicare Part D. I have interpreted for them before and personally found it very rewarding. Since they work with the under-served community, the project really means a lot to the patients because we can help them lower costs.
Interpreters are needed for Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin) and Spanish. Please come to the info session at the end of our Decal: it will be from 7:15-8pm this Thursday 9/29 in B51 Hildebrand. The coordinators will be coming from UCSF to give a presentation.
