Employees Give Books for 12th Street Center, Reach Out and Read

May 17, 2013 | More than 500 children’s books donated by UAMS employees in a recent book drive helped create a new Kids Corner for children of patients being seen at the 12th Street Health and Wellness Center.

Additional books collected by the UAMS House of Delegates employee group will be used by the non-profit Reach Out And Read Arkansas organization that promotes early childhood literacy. The organization already works with some UAMS regional clinics using its model of giving books to children being seen in the clinic and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.
