Experienced Medical Interpreter, Alicia Booth of Designated Interpreters provides a video review of The Communicator™ clear window surgical mask.
During her 15 plus years as an interpreter, Alicia has emphasized the humanization of the interpreter process by customizing services to each deaf individual’s distinct needs. Her clients’ accommodations are tailored by style preferences, career goals, and environmental norms surrounding the unique world of deaf healthcare professionals. By focusing on these singular elements, Alicia has replaced traditional ideologies with a more progressive approach to the field of medical interpretation.
Alicia works alongside Deaf Professionals in their medical training and provides consultation, accommodation supervision, and advocacy support for Deaf healthcare professionals and their service providers. She regularly presents at national and local conferences like Associated Medical Professionals with Hearing Loss (AMPHL), CATIE’S National Symposium on Healthcare Interpreting, and the University of Southern Maine, on issues pertaining to best accommodations practices in high stakes environments. Topics have included “FUSION – An integrative approach with CART and Interpreters”, “Designing Designated Interpreters,” “Taboo Team Topics” and co-presented “The Evolution of Designated Interpreters”, and multiple DP and DI forums.
