She is a Professor of Surgery at the University of Chicago, Director of Pediatric Cochlear Implant Program and the Founder and Director of the Thirty Million Words Initiative. She spoke about the thirty million word gap and what could be done to close this gap.

Did you know… Fiction books increase your ability to empathize with others. A study done by the University of Buffalo has concluded that access to possible realities and fictional story lines opens you up to new emotions and feelings. It also helps you to empathize with people, by understanding different cultures. #ReadAcrossAmerica #DrSeuss #ReadAcrossCLE
