SCRANTON — Marywood University’s Aphasia Support Group was recently awarded the 2015 RAISE (Raising Awareness In Stroke Excellence) Award, in the Voter’s Choice category, by the National Stroke Association. This is the second consecutive year the group is recognized with this award.

The Aphasia Support Group held a fundraiser at Yogurt City, Dickson City, to benefit the National Stroke Association. For this event, graduate and middle school students educated customers and raised awareness about aphasia, strokes and effective communication with stroke survivors. The event allowed for members and customers to spend time together and share their personal stories of triumph.
