Our Work in the Community

Goldsboro Pediatrics > Our Practice > Our Work in the Community
Community involvement is essential to our practice. Since 1977 we have provided financial, material, and human support for the good of Wayne County. Our providers and staff spend their time and efforts on initiatives that ultimately improve the quality of life for others. We are proud partners with our community through several programs.

Reach Out & Read (ROAR)

This national program promotes early literacy by bringing books and reading into the pediatric exam room.


Wayne County First Steps

First Steps was founded by Goldsboro Pediatrics in partnership with members of the community to nurture and monitor the growth and development of families in need. By supporting families when they need it most, the program aims to prevent child abuse and neglect in Wayne County.


Wayne Initiative For School Health (WISH)

This program assures that children without insurance are able to receive the care they need. It took shape in response to the overwhelming number of children in Wayne County who did not have health insurance. It was initiated by the Duke Endowment in partnership with Wayne Memorial Hospital and developed by practice founder Dr. Tayloe.


Change For Children

Obesity is a problem in the United States – and right here in Wayne County. CHANGE for Children (Commitment to Healthy Attitudes in Nutrition, Growth, and Education) is a program of Goldsboro Pediatrics in partnership with the Goldsboro Family YMCA and the Wayne County Health Department. Its goal is reducing childhood obesity in Wayne County.
