Sarah Savoia received her Master of Medical Science from the Yale School of Medicine. Physician Associate Program and completed her training at the Yale Memory Clinic. Ms. Savoia is now a practicing clinician in cognitive behavioral neurology and 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 investigate for new promising treatments that aim to restore function, with a focus on people with Down syndrome. 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 access to studies and clinical care for previously underrepresented patient populations and to expand our understanding of Alzheimer’s biology to rapidly translate and implement our findings into effective preventive interventions and therapies.
