On Thursday, January 30th, Route 51 explored the importance of reading and early childhood development, both identified as urgent needs in the just released United Way LIFE Report (Local Indicators for Excellence), which details the strengths and challenges affecting quality of life in central Wisconsin. Host Glen Moberg moderated a discussion with Dean Dietrich, an attorney with the Ruder Ware law firm who is the chair of the Early Years Coalition of Marathon County; Julie Burmesch, a speech pathologist with the Wausau School District and vice-chair of the Early Years Coalition; and Sandy Ellis, a consultant on early childhood development and president of Prevention Solutions LLC of Junction City. The program will also feature an interview with Dr. Dipesh Navasaria, an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the keynote speaker at last weeks LIFE Report forum at UW Marathon County. Navasaria is a spokesman for Reach Out and Read, which makes literacy promotion a standard part of pediatric primary care.
