 SHAC Interpreting Services provides a forum for the practice and development of language and clinical interpreting skills. Currently, we offer opportunities in Spanish and Mandarin.

Our primary mission is to provide consistent and reliable interpreting services for the patients of the student-run volunteer clinic, SHAC.

Our membership is open to all UNC students and employees interested in improving their ability to translate in healthcare settings. The majority of members are UNC-Chapel Hill students including undergraduate, health professional, graduate, and post-graduate students, in addition to university employees.

 SHAC offers free health care every Wednesday evening at the Carrboro Community Health Center, a division of Piedmont Health Services, Inc. SHAC Interpreting Services also provides interpreting and bilingual health education services at community health fairs, including La Fiesta del Pueblo, St. Thomas Moore and El Centro Hispano, among others.
