CFMC Partners with Reach Out & Read
CFMC, Inc. is excited to announce a partnership with Reach Out & Read, a national early literacy promotional program that targets children from infancy through kindergarten.
At each regular checkup from 6 months through 5 years of age, a child will receive a new age appropriate book from their provider to take home. Providers and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud. Children will receive a library of 8 to 10 children’s books before starting kindergarten.
Each year, medical providers at the nearly 5,000 Reach Out and Read program sites nationwide distribute 6.5 million books to children and invaluable literacy advice to parents. In Kentucky, 49,516 children are served annually with 72,530 books distributed through 96 Reach Out & Read Programs.
Reach Out & Read is now available in most all primary care Family Medical Center locations. Schedule your well child visit today and your child will receive a FREE book!
