Lourdes Dosal Social Worker Fund

Fund Purpose
Support the social worker program at the Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases.

Dr. Kelly Foote, Lourdes Dosal and Dr. Michael Okun
This fund was established by Lourdes Dosal out of appreciation for the care received at the UF Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases. “Warrior Lou” wanted to honor her two doctors whom she calls her superheroes and credits them for giving her the hope and encouragement to deal with the challenges that are part of living with Parkinson’s. The Lourdes Dosal Fund supports the social worker program at the Fixel Institute, and is a critical piece in delivering care to the patient and their family. Our social workers provide families with information about the resources available to them to cope with the emotional, financial, and social needs that arise with a diagnosis.

If you are looking for a way to make a difference, for a way to fight back against diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and ALS, then please partner with us in our mission. Researchers and physicians in the Fixel Institute make progress every day in understanding and treating conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. The work of these dedicated physicians and scientists is greatly enhanced and sustained through private philanthropy.

Gifts can be made via credit card, check, transfers of stock, real estate, or planned gifts such as wills, trusts, and annuities. If we are already included in your will, please let us know. We’d like to thank you and make sure your gift is worded in a way to maximize your impact.
