SANKOFA SPRING PERFORMANCE
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
The foundations of contemporary stepping emerged in the United States during the 1900s as an aspect of performed self and group affirmation for African-American Greek letter sororities and fraternities. At Williams, this history began in 1996 when five students introduced the tradition to friends. As a result, interest in the power of bodies moving in unison to create sound and motion grew. They named themselves Sankofa, a word and concept from the Akan people of Ghana that can be translated as “reach back and get it.” Sankofa acknowledges its roots and uses Hip-Hop, spoken word and media to keep stepping contemporary. 62 Center

JOT IT DOWN! NOTE TAKING FOR MEDICAL INTERPRETERS
Springfield, 9:30 am - 12:45 pm
Time: Registration: 9:00 am Program: 9:30 am to 12:45 pm Regular Fee: $ 30.00 CEU Fee: $20.00 (includes certificate of completion: 3.00 CCHI or 0.3 IMIA) Education Level: Intermediate to Advanced Description: This 3-hour workshop focuses on note taking theory and practice for medical interpreters. We will start with the basics and move beyond to help interpreters begin to develop their own system that fits their context and needs. Participants will become familiar with the principles of note taking and learn about helpful symbols for the healthcare context. Next, we will work on applying this knowledge through exercises and guided work. Interpreters will work on developing a list of their own symbols and abbreviations, as well as an overall note taking strategy. Finally, we will practice in small groups and in front of all with healthcare-based dialogues. Before the end of the workshop, all participants will prepare a plan for further practice and study.
