NCIHC, a multidisciplinary organization whose mission is to promote and enhance language access in health care in the United States, formalized in 1998 after a series of working group meetings that began in 1994. Since then, NCIHC has organized an annual gathering of hospital administrators, policymakers, researchers, healthcare providers, language access advocates, interpreters, and interpreter educators from around the nation. The two day event consists of interactive and structured information sharing, networking, and brainstorming discussions as well as time for informal focused meetings throughout the event.
