Members of @kappapsi Pharmaceutical Fraternity across the country have worked extensively over the last year to support Reach Out and Read - including the Gamma Kappa chapter at @sdstatepics, who helped build a literacy-rich waiting room at Avera Medical Group Brookings! We would love to send a big thank you to Gamma Kappa and all members of Kappa Psi - keep up the great work!

There’s nothing like father-son or daddy-daughter time! We know how important it is for dads to read with their kids, but did you know this shared reading time is great for dad too? Take a look at this article (http://bit.ly/2JGh4JN) on the benefits of reading aloud for both dads and their children. • #Dads #Kids #Reading #Books #ParentingTips
