In June of this past summer, MIIS Alumni Katharine Allen and MIIS Associate Professor Holly Mikkelson traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to teach trainers in the health care interpreting profession. The course was sponsored by TAPIT (Tennessee Association of Professional Interpreters and Translators), MING (Medical Interpreter Network of Georgia), and TAMIT (Tennessee Association of Medical Interpreters and Translators), all of whom assisted in promotion of the event.

Holly and Katharine instructed trainers on assessment, creating materials for courses, and technology use in their profession. A portion of the training focused on utilizing new web technologies as well as the use of iPads and smart phones, allowing for the use of cutting-edge technology in the interpreting profession.
