From the Nominator
Aging is an area of priority for our university and so we wanted highlight that as an area of excellence for our alumni.
This article draws attention to one exciting area of research: caring for people living with dementia. However, it was also important that this piece go beyond dry research findings and represent the human side of this disease.
From the Judges
The judges were unanimous in their decision to choose New Trail's “Out of the Shadows” for the 2019 CASE Platinum Article of the year. Beautifully written and highly informative, we thought the author wove his own personal experience in a compelling, but not overbearing manner, which drew us in. The story was also well-paced and had an overall quality of hopefulness. Perhaps the best thing, however, was the story’s universality. We could all relate to having to deal with dementia, either personally or as caregivers, in the near or distant future.
