TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine Reading Program: Read to Fort Worth Kids


The Texas Christian University (TCU) and University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) School of Medicine has partnered with Read Fort Worth to provide videos of medical students and faculty reading short stories. Videos are shared on social media, and, in turn, Read Fort Worth and The Fort Worth Public Library will share with their broad and encompassing audiences. Read Fort Worth was thrilled to have the participation of our first-year medical students, not only to help advance the children’s reading and listening skills, but to serve as examples and models for the children to emulate.
