The Role Of Medical Interpreters: Narrative Matters On NPR



December 3rd, 2008
by Ellen Ficklen

If you listen to National Public Radio’s (NPR) “All Things Considered” on Saturday afternoons, recently you heard the voice of Narrative Matters author Nataly Kelly. Her on-air commentary about being a medical interpreter was excerpted from her Narrative Matters essay in the November/December 2008 issue of Health Affairs. For a story of a medical tragedy caused by a hospital not using a professional medical interpreter, read this post on the Health Affairs Blog.

Narrative Matters essays are good listening as well as good reading. You can listen to several other Narrative Matters authors reading from their essays on NPR as well.
