The Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, based out of the University of Miami Health System, is an organization dedicated to furthering ophthalmic care, research, and education. The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation, through its partnership with Bascom Palmer, looks to further the Institute’s medical research.

The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation is considered part of the Norton Society for its continued support. The vision research conducted with their assistance involves the study and analysis of the eye-brain signatures of the retina. Through this work, Bascom Palmer hopes to improve patient outcomes by detecting Alzheimer’s years before diagnosis.

“We are proud to partner with Bascom Palmer,” says Eugene Frenkel. “Our family-run foundation is committed to funding the research, treatment and eventual eradication of neurological diseases. What better way to accomplish our family’s mission than to help give the gift of sight?”

The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation is a family-run non-profit that strives to bring together like-minded philanthropists to promote giving across generations. The Foundation is also dedicated to helping causes such as children’s welfare, religious development, and education.
