“One in five children in the U.S. lives in poverty…Pediatricians must speak out in unison and declare that childhood poverty is unacceptable.” Dr. Benard Dreyer, as president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, has five specific goals laid out to help poor kids especially in early childhood. One major change will start in the pediatrician’s office with the help of Reach Out and Read. Dr. Dreyer notes, “We give books to parents at every well child visit up to five years of age. Four million children are now getting books from pediatricians, and studies show that it advances language development.”
