Remembering Shirley Garrison

Posted: Updated:

There is sad news today at Texas tech, as it was announced that Shirley garrison has died after a brief illness.

You know the name; he is the face behind Texas Tech's Garrison Institute on aging, that beautiful facility across the street from the health sciences center.

The facility with his name was launched to do two things, bring important research here into the study of neurological diseases, like Alzheimer's, and also to promote healthy aging, which led to the "Healthy Lubbock Initiative" that has already involved hundreds of families in this area

Shirley Garrison will be missed. He was very involved in community events up until about 2 weeks ago. He was 94.
