About Glenn Biggs
Glenn Biggs was a prominent figure whose leadership influenced economic development across San Antonio, Texas. When he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he and his family struggled to find comprehensive dementia care. This search led him to approach UT Health San Antonio and many other community leaders to address the need for a comprehensive center dedicated to understanding Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
“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.”
