Updates and New Projects

Latest Update:

Reach Out and Read

CrescentCare received a grant from the Entergy Foundation to start a Reach Out and Read program. Our pediatric physicians and nurses will give literacy guidance to parents of children 6 months through 5 years of age during each well-child visit and the provider will give the child a new, developmentally-appropriate book to take home, building a collection of 8-10 new books in the home before the child goes to kindergarten. The provider also repeatedly prescribes reading aloud every day. Our providers are very excited about this new initiative!
