The mission of TAHIT’s Annual Symposium on Language Access is to provide up-to-date educational presentations and workshops supporting Language Access in healthcare. The purpose is to bring together medical interpreters, translators, providers, administrators, and healthcare workers for collaboration and an exchange of knowledge.   

Your submitted proposal to the 12th Annual TAHIT Symposium should be submitted no later than Friday, May 4th, 2018. Submissions can be made on our website. The Symposium Presentation Committee will notify you by late June if your presentation has been accepted.

Here are some general guidelines for presentation submissions:

  • Preference is given to proposals that are likely to be approved for CEUs by CCHI, IMIA, ATA, RID, etc.
  • New, unique and specific presentations are highly desirable. 
  • Speakers are requested to refrain from sales pitches for their own companies or products and services, or any other companies, organizations, or vendors, etc.  
  • TAHIT politely requests industry neutrality and professional respect in presentations with regard to fellow competitors and other industry members or suppliers.
  • While TAHIT will make every effort to include sound capability, sound incorporated into presentations, videos, songs, YouTube, etc., technical difficulties can present themselves at any time!  Please plan accordingly.
