Franklin Memorial Hospital, Franklin Health Pediatrics, Farmington Family Practice and Livermore Falls Family Practice all participate in the Raising Readers program, the statewide network of hospitals and medical practices that gives books to Maine children.
Giving a book to each child at birth and at all well-child visits from two months to five years presents providers with the opportunity to stress to parents the importance of reading aloud to their child, and to give suggestions about how to use the books. Research shows that reading to children daily helps their brains grow and develop, and promotes literacy skills and educational attainment.
Pediatrician Dr. Gabriel Civiello serves as a clinical advisor for this program funded by the Libra Foundation, led and administered by MaineHealth in collaboration with Eastern Maine Health System, and with support from the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.
Having clinical social workers alongside health care providers is a new model being used at Franklin Health primary care medical practices. Social workers perform behavioral health services on the spot, as well as by primary doctor referral, providing assessment and diagnosis, and brief counseling for patients of all ages. Your doctor or nurse may ask you to take a moment to meet our practice’s social worker.
