2103 RAISE Award medallion

Most Creative

National Park Services
in collaboration with California State University East Bay's Aphasia Treatment Program & Yosemite Conservancy

This award honors an individual or group using creativity and originality to spread the word about stroke.


A collaboration between National Park Services, California State University’s Aphasia Treatment Program and a group of stroke and brain injury survivors with funding through a grant from the Yosemite Conservancy resulted in the development of an aphasia-friendly guide to Yosemite Valley. For the approximately 20,000 annual visitors with speech and communications-related disabilities, this new visual guide will be enormously valuable in enhancing their experience at the park.
