I am ... A Survivor

Avi Golden is a remarkable advocate of aphasia awareness, as well as driven to help people with stroke (and other forms of disabilities) to enjoy the outdoors, despite physical and cognitive disabilities. For example, Avi volunteers for many Aphasia Awareness Training for Emergency Responders at area hospitals through the National Aphasia Association. He also is assisted the Project Manager with community outreach to police, firefighters and EMTs in NY and NJ. He participated in training sessions. Worked on the creation of curriculum and materials used in training program. Avi was featured in a cover story for Jewish Standard newspaper "Got _______? Aphasia: At a loss for words." by Miryam Z. Wahrman, Science Correspondent, August 13, 2010. On Aug 11, 2010- at the Alder Aphasia Center, he was in "Guys & Dolls", and he played "Arvide Abernatty" for an audience of 500 people. He is starting a non-profit organization "Outdoors Club for Disabled People." I can provide you with Avi's "stroke resume" to elucidate more. Please advise if you want more information. Thank you!
