The Foundation of Wesley Woods is proud to play an important role in Emory Universityís on-going work to find ways to treat, care and cure those afflicted with Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís diseases. Since its inception, our annual Heroes, Saints, and Legends Awards Dinner and Gala has raised more than $5 million to fund innovative research to support these critical efforts. We are privileged to be working with physicians, scientists and caregivers who are world leaders in their fields, and we are asking you to partner with us to harness their talents to make these debilitating diseases a thing of the past.
On Thursday, May 9th, 2013, at the Atlanta History Center in Buckhead we will celebrate two remarkable Georgians over sixty years of age whose incredible careers and contributions continue to enrich our community. The Foundation is proud to honor Vince Dooley, former head football coach and athletic director at the University of Georgia, and Monica Pearson, retired anchorwoman at WSB-TV in Atlanta. We will also present the Key to a Cure award to Dr. Allan Levey, Professor and Chair, Department of Neurology at Emory University and Director of the Emory Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, in recognition of his tireless efforts to find a cure and treatment for those afflicted with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease.
