Encouraging a Love for Reading

asdMotivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and in creating lifelong successful leaders. In celebration of Read Across America Day (Dr. Seuss’s Birthday), Sr. Francis Raftery, SC, Patient Relations Coordinator, St. Joseph’s Health enthusiastically shared ‘On Beyond Zebra’ by Dr. Seuss with a classroom of 3-year-olds at the Paterson Family Center (PFC) Preschool in Paterson’s historic district. This is just one of the many ways that St. Joseph’s Health propels its Mission to reaching out and giving back to the surrounding community.
