Education Excellence

Mar 25, 2020

The CEO of Reach Out and Read, Brian Gallagher, discusses their innovative program which provides books to children by partnering with pediatricians—giving children a new book at each well-child checkup from birth to age five.  Reach Out and Read provides life-long benefits: engaging families, supporting parent-child bonding, brain development, and literacy skills.  They often focus on low-income communities—leveling the playing field by preparing all children for formal education.  Pediatricians who take part in the program have embraced it  as an essential component of a child’s healthcare.  This episode is sponsored by Vernier,; Open Up Resources,, Flinn Scientific, and
