Senior Medicare Patrol Bilingual Speakers
The mission of the Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) is to reduce the millions of tax payers' dollars that we lose to Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse every year! Group Presenters empower and assist Medicare beneficiaries, and their caregivers, to prevent, detect and report healthcare fraud, error and abuse by educating them on SMP topics throughout the community!
In effort to reach out to limited/non-English speaking communities, the Senior Medicare Patrol needs bilingual speakers to assist us with translation services & providing presentations in various languages. Languages needed include: Spanish, Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese), Russian & Korean
What would a SMP Bilingual speaker do?
SMP Bilingual Speakers will translate 5-30 minute presentations to group audiences, with some presentations including a Q & A end-session portion! SMP volunteers will be expected to travel to various speaking engagements within an agreed upon distance range.
