Greetings from Greg

Dear colleagues and friends:

I’m excited about all that we accomplished this year but I’m even more excited to think about 2008!

CultureSmart managed in 2007 to expand its list of clients and collaborating organizations, both within and outside Massachusetts. I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to increase the number of people who benefit from our services as we reach out to new communities throughout the U.S. Our talented language coaches and trainers have helped us prepare new medical interpreters from Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Language coaching is a unique and integral part of our comprehensive The Essential Piece program: few other medical interpreter training programs have language-specific components, and I know of no other company offering our diversity of languages.

Best Wishes,

Gregory Figaro
