Nancy Durkee from Women of Impact presented Sariem Am, DNP, CPNP-PC/AC of Grace Health checks from Women of Impact for Grace Health’s Reach Out and Read / Early Literacy Program. Through this program new, age-appropriate books are given to children 6 months – 5 years of age by the provider during their well-child visit. The provider explains to the parent/guardian the importance of reading to/with a child – linking health care to literacy.
Grace Health’s Reach Out and Read, Early Literacy Program started in 2004. Through the continued generosity of organizations like Women of Impact, Grace Health has provided more than 54,400 books to children since the start of the program.
