site support Meeting: april 2022
On Friday, April 29, 2022, Reach Out & Read Illinois hosted our annual Site Support Meeting. Big THANK YOU to everyone that was in attendance!! The theme of our meeting was Finding Joy in the Exam Room, a theme that we hope all of the ROR-IL team can focus on this year. It has been a difficult past couple of years–take some time to think about what brings you joy in all spaces of your life! We hope that Reach Out & Read continues to bring you joy in your life, as we know how much joy it brings the families and children we serve.
