Reach Out & Read Program

Transform the life of a child by giving the gift of reading.

Through the Reach Out & Read program, our Family Medicine clinic sites give children between the ages of six months and 5 years old a new, age-appropriate book at every well-child visit. These books enable our patients’ families to make reading aloud together a daily activity.

This national program promotes relationships and literacy. Research shows that reading regularly stimulates optional brain development and strengthens parent-child relationships.

Your gift in support of our Reach Out & Read program will make a big impact for our youngest patients and help us continue to purchase new books for the children seen in our Family Medicine clinic sites each year.
