Prescribing books to kids, with guest Jaclyn Sisskind, MD, on Upstate's "The Informed Patient" podcast

Pediatrician treats reading as key part of patients' lives

Pediatrician Jaclyn Sisskind, MD, recommends some books for young people.  She believes in the power of books -- so much so that she sometimes prescribes specific books to her patients and wrote about her practice in the School Library Journal. An assistant professor of pediatrics at Upstate, Sisskind also discusses the impact of banning books.
