"JOHOR BARU: The Reading While Waiting programme will be initiated by all hospitals statewide starting with Sultanah Aminah Hospital.
State Health Department director Dr Mohd Khairi Yakub said the programme was aimed at lessening the boredom of those waiting at government hospitals and clinics.
“It is also part of the state’s efforts to instill reading as a way to pass time. Reading can lessen boredom while patients wait for consultancy,” he said in his speech during the launch of the programme here recently.
Dr Mohd Khairi said the hospitals and clinics would be supplied with an array of reading materials."
RW2 is a very good campaign to increase reading awareness among us. And I do agree that one of the best time to read is while you're waiting especially a long wait (long queue in the bank for example). I've started my own RW2 and loving it since.
