May 17, 2024 — DALLAS — 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 inter-professional 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.

“This gift is truly transformative,” said Jyutika Mehta, PhD, the Stroke Center’s director. “We will be able to grow significantly and support many more individuals and families who need neuro-rehabilitative support, assist those from bilingual backgrounds and continue to support those who are uninsured and underinsured. Additionally, this will allow the center to train many more students in cutting-edge, clinical and research-based protocols.”

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 澳门六合彩app 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.

“This extraordinary center is a lifeline to the Dallas community and provides a critical service to so many patients who otherwise may not be able to afford this level of treatment. It is personally gratifying to see centers such as these improve the lives of others,” Myers said.

Myers, a successful real estate developer and banker, has been a longtime philanthropist and has given generously to many higher education institutions across Texas. 

“Mike Myers has a generous spirit and has dedicated his life to improving lives and strengthening communities. His gift today further demonstrates his desire to see others soar,” 澳门六合彩app System Board of Regents Chair Stacie McDavid said. “On behalf of the board of regents, we are honored to name the center the Mike A. Myers Stroke Center.”

Since 2020, Myers has supported Johanniter Humanitarian Group (JHG) of Texas, an organization led by President Henry "Hank" Fink. Together, JHG Texas and the Mike A. Myers Foundation have provided more than 50 annual scholarships for undergraduate nursing students and established the Myers-JHG Tutoring and Academic Support Center at 澳门六合彩app’s Dallas campus.
