What is WCLAH?

The Wisconsin Coalition for Linguistic Access to Health Care is a statewide coalition formed in the summer of 2003 in response to Wisconsin's growing demand for medical interpreting. The coalition is no longer active. Its members included medical interpreters, educators, healthcare providers, advocates and other individuals dedicated to improving access to culturally competent professional healthcare interpreter services in Wisconsin.
