Patients and Families
We are excited to share a new series of IFOPA Family Services programming aimed at creating more fun and connection. Each month in 2021 we'll be hosting a community social event.
All community social events will be hosted on Zoom video conferencing and simultaneous translation** will be provided in the following languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil and Vietnamese.
- Learn how to navigate Zoom
- Preview the instructions for turning on translation in a Zoom meeting
- You do not need a ZOOM account to join a meeting or webinar, but if you can download the ZOOM app to your computer, phone or tablet it might make it easier. You can also join by phone: IOS (iPhones, iPads) / Android devices
*Translation services and the Zoom video application can not be accessed at the same time on a single mobile device. If you're using a mobile device and want to access translation and see fellow attendees during a Zoom meeting, you will need a second mobile device or a computer to open translation services. With two mobile devices or a mobile device and a computer, you can participate in the Zoom meeting on one device and access written and audio translation on the other.
