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, Texas. When Biggs was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he and his family struggled to find comprehensive dementia 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.
You can help advance dementia care
We are always searching for ways to enhance and expand our enrichment programs to better serve our community. Volunteers are needed to help at events so we can continue to support the needs of our patients and their families.
We are working to expand the understanding of dementia by learning how biological and environmental factors influence health. You can help us by signing up to provide samples, like blood, when you are already scheduled to provide samples for lab exams.
Clinical trial volunteer
Volunteers from all health backgrounds are needed to help us learn more about dementia. As a healthy clinical trial volunteer, your participation may include one or two clinical visits overtime or providing a one-time sample of blood.
When a person donates, they are helping find better ways to diagnose and treat millions of people living with dementia. Some of the most exciting advances and discoveries come from studying brain tissue, which is why we need your help.
“UT Health San Antonio has the passion and vision. Because of the inspiration from Glenn Biggs, Dr. Henrich had a grand vision that also matched what I wanted to do. The grandness of this vision makes our likelihood for success greater.”
