Reach Out and Read Program

Westside Family Healthcare is a participant in the national Reach Out and Read program. This program “makes early literacy a standard part of pediatric primary care” by incorporating books in a patient’s well-child visit as a means to measure developmental milestones and promote early literacy. As a part of the program, our qualified clinicians encourage parents to read aloud to their young children while they wait for their well-child checkup. At each well-child visit, children between the ages of six months and five years receive a new, age-appropriate book to keep, with the belief that this will extend reading beyond our office doors. Visit Reach Out and for more information regarding the national program.

To donate new or gently used books, to volunteer your time, or if you have any questions regarding our program, please contact us at
