Saturday, August 27th at Boston University
The Aphasia Resource Center at Boston University hosted a celebratory event on Saturday, August 27th where more than 120 people gathered. Coming to Boston University was meaningful for the entire Stroke Onward team as the two organizations have been collaborating together to develop tools to support emotional wellness after stroke and educational opportunities for the next generation of healthcare providers. Thank you to Liz Hoover, Anne Carney, Jerry Kaplan, and the many others at Boston University who had a hand in bringing this event to life.
Event attendees included: stroke survivors, people living with aphasia, healthcare partners, friends and families of those impacted by stroke, and others. The afternoon began on the lawn outside of the Communications Building where attendees mingled with representatives from regional organizations offering emotional and physical recovery resources. Guests were then welcomed inside for an educational program complete with videos and photos from the journey, a question and answer session with the riders, and a performance featuring “The Other Voices of Aphasia” by Judy Blatt – an incredible short play that describes aphasia from the perspective of the loved ones who support the person with aphasia.
