Foreign Language Materials
The following sites contain materials in languages other than English. While materials would ideally be interpreted by trained medical interpreters, it is not always possible to get materials written this way. If a family member speaks English, it may be a good idea to review a document with them first to be sure it says what you think it says. If you know a good site with foreign language materials, submit it to us.
