Description

Purpose: The Reach Out and Read Wisconsin Annual Meeting brings together our collaborating partners and those who work every day to implement our early literacy clinical intervention. Join us to learn more about the ways positive parental engagement and reading aloud effects child development, learn best practice strategies for implementing a Reach Out and Read program and collaborate with other professionals from across the state. This conference is appropriate for:

  • Clinic managers
  • Public Health advocates
  • Fundraisers / Health care development staff
  • Librarians
  • Adult literacy champions

Topics will include:

  • Longitudinal research about the effects of early literacy
  • Cultural presentation
  • Breakout sessions about how to choose age appropriate books
  • Structured networking to meet and discuss ideas with other ROR partners from across the state

Other features:

  • Giveaways - including a book for each attendee and the chance to win book packs for your clinic
  • Exhibitors - Books4School and All About Books
  • CME credit - is available for additional fee

To help cover food and room rental costs, we are raising prices for the first time in seven years. Scholarships are available for individuals from clinics that cannot afford the registration fee.
