Medical interpretation is critical to Canada’s diverse population. MedComm is a group of medical students at McGill University committed to promoting a culturally- and linguistically-sensitive healthcare environment for unilingual patients. We’re working to ensure that no voice goes unheard – regardless of its language. You can quickly request a volunteer interpreter through our program!
