Myers makes $2 million gift to Stroke Center

Dallas businessman and philanthropist Mike A. Myers has given a $2 million gift to Texas Woman’s stroke center to be used to expand research, patient and family services, and interprofessional training opportunities.

In recognition of the Myers gift, the Texas Woman’s University System Board of Regents on Friday renamed the center the Mike A. Myers Stroke Center.

The center, established in 1992 by Texas Woman’s University to provide specialized treatment for patients who experience a stroke or head injury, also conducts research and training for TWU graduate students. The center does not charge patients and is funded primarily through grants and contributions.

The gift will be used to support a variety of operations, including research and patient services, which includes adding bilingual clinicians and programming and expanding services to include hearing assessments and treatment directed at improving feeding and swallowing.
