PedsIG – Child Advocacy in Action

This year, the American Academy of Pediatrics is focusing on child literacy. Our group is tackling this issue on a local level by working with the Shands clinics Reach Out & Read program to collect books to refresh the shelves in clinic waiting rooms. Boxes for book donations will be in MDL-1 and MDL-2 until Friday, February 8th. Please contact Shannon Brockman at with any questions or to make a donation.
