2014 RAISE Award medallion

Most Creative

Mount Carmel Stroke Outreach

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


The stroke outreach team at Mount Carmel Health System consisting of nurses, therapists, medics, retired school teachers and multiple stroke survivors developed an interactive program for elementary school-aged children to educate them about stroke. Through five specific activities students learn about stroke, the signs and symptoms, and recognition. The program includes outcomes—students were tested on their stroke knowledge retained after one week and then about six months later. The program shows great success with students’ knowledge retention at nearly 90%.
