About Glenn Biggs

Known for his dedication and service to the community, Glenn Biggs was a prominent figure whose leadership influenced economic development across San Antonio. When he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he and his family struggled to find comprehensive care. This search led him to approach UT Health San Antonio President William L. Henrich, M.D., MACP, and many other community leaders to address the need for a comprehensive center dedicated to understanding Alzheimer’s disease. His vision of a center to transform care and advance discovery became what is today known as the Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases at UT Health San Antonio.
