Quote of the Day 5/15/2015

“There are things we address as physicians that may not have long-term effects, such as a child who comes in for a cold. We know that the cold will resolve itself and the child will be fine. If we do not address the word gap for our families, then we are not addressing one of the most potentially long-term disadvantages that they will face.”

-Tulsa pediatrician Amy Emerson, who is participating in a campaign to raise awareness on the importance of talking, reading and singing to children from birth to age 3 (Source)
