MiTio is the nation’s oldest medical interpreter training program, and the first in the country to offer Income Share Agreements. The capital will allow MiTio to increase access to its training program and provide bilingual students the training necessary to secure a role in the certified medical interpreter industry, projected to grow 20% by 2029 - five times faster than average.

“I'm looking for a miracle. I expect the impossible. I want to feel the intangible and see the invisible.” Those are popular verses to an old gospel song. Whenever I need a miracle that song gives me hope, it bolsters my faith. Right now I need a miracle. This is the time of year when our expectations of the New Year have to be balanced with the realities of how the year actually went.
Tamales is a staple food throughout Central and South America. It is traditionally served during the holidays and takes hours to prepare. As a kid the smell of fresh tamales in the kitchen could rouse me from the deepest sleep.
Are you dreading the approaching holidays? If so, is it because of the lack of a support system? Something about the holidays makes not having a tribe difficult to stomach. When I was single and living thousands of miles away from everyone I loved, the holidays were especially perilous. I would ask to work on every holiday, saying that it was for the money, in those days they paid us double and triple overtime.
I love comedy. I love jokes. It is a proven fact that comedy and a good joke in particular that leaves you laughing is like medicine. Laughing releases toxins and decreases cortisol. Laughing improves our immune system and decreases stress hormones, thus leading to our healing and overall health. Cancer patients nationwide are given laughing sessions to aid with their healing and recovery. Laughing for healthy individuals keeps them healthy and young. A smile actually improves the muscles of your face and thus makes you look younger and keeps you younger looking longer. I love comedy. I love to laugh.

The Meaning of the Word Volume II
Welcome back MiTio Family!
What do you do when you have an untranslatable word? Most of the time when my interpreters encounter an untranslatable word either in English or in their target language, during our daily live practice sessions/webinars, I encourage them to reduce the register and explain it away. In order to do so effectively, however, they must know the “meaning of the word.”
