Mission: To emphasize the importance of literacy and be a liason between the pediatrician and patient/patient's family.
Programs: The prescriptions to read program was established by pediatrician dr. Shelly senders in 1999. This novel approach was developed to encourage patients to engage in reading activities outside of their formal education environment. To this day, the basic program consists of age-appropriate reading lists that pediatricians hand to their patients. Graphically designed to mimic a medicinal prescription, the prescriptions to read emphasize the healthy practice of improving literacy in children.
