BvB Dallas is a non-profit organization that brings young-professionals together to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s disease research and support organizations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Founded in 2008 by a group of young-professional women, BvB Dallas was created as a way to honor and remember loved ones who have suffered from Alzheimer’s and related diseases.
Supporting our 2023 beneficiaries, programs funded this year are for Alzheimer's disease research and senior companion programs.
Alzheimer's Association: BvB funds provide the staff and resources to achieve a 25% increase in engagement and access to dementia education, resources, and support in the Black/African American, Asian American Pacific Islander, and Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer or Questioning communities.
Juliette Folwer Communities: BvB Dallas funds and supports Juliette Fowler’s initiatives that assist people with various levels of cognitive health. Programs such as “I’m Still Here” as well as Dementia Friendly Dallas help create better awareness and care for caregivers and people with dementia here in Dallas.
The Senior Source: Funding from BVB Dallas will support ongoing programing of The Senior Source provided to enhance the well-being of older adults affected by Alzheimer’s related dementia as well as those who care for them, specifically through the agency’s Caregiver Support and Guardianship Programs.
Fellowship Funding: BvB Dallas will continue to partner with UT Southwestern Medical Center by funding the Clinical Neuropsychology Alzheimer’s Disease Fellowship, which provides the opportunity to rapidly develop expertise in differential diagnosis and treatment of dementia.
Diagnosis & Treatment Research: BvB will also support UT Southwestern in their research to diagnose and treat Alzheimer’s disease by optimizing and validating techniques to deliver human tau antibodies across the blood brain barrier in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
