Parkland Foundation has received two endowments from the Nancy B.C. Weldon Foundation in support of neurocognitive disorder care and research. The funds are further leveraged through Parkland Foundation's matching endowment program.
Nancy Weldon, a woman who came from humble beginnings, experienced good fortune in her life and had a charitable heart, was committed to making sure that her assets would go to medical research to help improve the health of the community for years to come.
"Nancy was committed to making sure her foundation helped people that were underprivileged,” said John Calandro III, CFP®, Nancy B.C. Weldon Foundation board member. “There isn't any doubt that Parkland is the white-glove facility in Dallas. The employees are passionate about the work they do and we want to support that.”
Parkland’s Neurology Clinic provides consultation, evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for adult patients with symptoms that may be caused by a brain or nerve condition. The facility's neurocognitive disorders research and care includes in those affected by epilepsy, stroke and dementia.
“We hope for progress,” said Calandro. “That doesn't always happen evenly in research but, as this is a community effort, we want to be a team player."
