South Florida Real Estate Stephen Bittel Advances Progress in Parkinson’s Research with $1m Donation

Stephen Bittel has never been one to sit idly by. A fixture in the South Florida community, Bittel has gained a reputation over the years for being a bold man of action, embodying the old adage “if you want something done right, do it yourself.” From rehabilitating and transforming core downtown areas through his commercial real estate firm Terranova Corporation to his diverse involvement in organizations such as Achieve Miami and the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, when Bittel sees a problem that needs fixing, he rolls up his sleeves and gets to work.

For this reason, while the number itself is inspiring, nobody who knows or has heard of Stephen Bittel would be the least surprised to learn about his latest endeavor: a donation of $1 million to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Movement Disorders Division in the Department of Neurology, to be used toward research into a cure for Parkinson’s disease and improve developments in patient care.
