Sarah Savoia, PA-C, is a practicing clinician in cognitive behavioral neurology, who completed her training at Yale Medicine, and is now an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology at UT Health San Antonio. Her clinical and research focus at the Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer's & Neurodegenerative Disease is to transform dementia care management practices for both patients and their caregivers and to help investigate for new promising treatments that aim to restore function. As a National Institute on Aging (NIA)-designated Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center in South Texas, we are collaborating with other institutions and community stakeholders to improve previously underrepresented patient populations’ access to studies and clinical care, including those with Down Syndrome, to expand our understanding of Alzheimer’s biology and to rapidly translate and implement our findings into effective preventive interventions and therapies.
