Methodist Physicians Clinic Pediatrics Providing Books Through Reach Out and ReadPublished: Oct. 26, 2023
A new chapter has begun on pediatric care in Council Bluffs.
The Methodist Physicians Clinic Pediatrics recently joined a nationwide program called Reach Out and Read that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together every day.
“We care about literacy,” Dr. Heidi Killefer said at a Tuesday event introducing the program to the public.
As part of the program, Killefer and other pediatricians at the clinic are now handing out age-appropriate books to parents during their children’s wellness visits as a new way to improve literacy in their children.
