Hope you’re enjoying the extra freedom we have now that Philadelphia has finally reached the yellow phase and if all goes well we’ll go green on July 3rd so let’s keep doing what we’re doing, wearing masks and social distancing - it’s working and it’s the best we have until we get a vaccine.

Moving on – Happy father’s day to all you dads and uncles, grandfathers, mentors who have taken on the role of dad. Even though Mom’s get the flowers, the good presents and the nice lunches and you get a tie or an old spice gift set - you are precious and we so appreciate you. For father’s day we’re re-airing a special I produced a couple of years ago about a program that started at the old SCI Graterford– it’s called FACT – fathers and children together and it’s a program designed to bond the men living behind the walls with their kids to break the cycle of incarceration. The program has continued and grown since when the men moved to SCI Phoenix. You’ll hear from two men very instrumental in the program’s founding Sam “Magic” Brown and former Juvenile lifer Kempis Songster, who was incarcerated at 15 for life but released after 30 years after a supreme court decision ruled that mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole were unconstitutional for Juveniles.

But first what if your pediatrician thinks a well-baby and child exam should include talk with the parents about the importance of reading? That would be awesome right? I speak with Trude Haecker, M.D. Medical Director of Global Patient Services at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Medical Director of CHOP’s Reach Out and Read and Medical Director of Reach Out and Read Greater Philadelphia and Danielle Erkoboni associate medical director of Reach Out and Read Greater Philadelphia.
