column ideas

What needs for translation are going unmet in the healthcare system? Assuming people of means don’t have problems with receiving the highest quality care, including translation services, what options are available for the poor? (My yoga instructor’s mother is at the Barron Center where there are NO TRANSLATORS who speak Spanish.)

I mentioned in a Facebook post that while I’m usually full of ideas for columns, I don’t often write down the little starter thoughts I have so I can explore them later. I think I’m going to post these snippet thoughts here on as a way to keep track of them. Perhaps I’ll also gauge people’s interest if there is a response to one idea more than others. If you have ideas for columns regarding socioeconomic issues and Maine you’d like to see covered, please let me know.
