The Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health seek social and public health solutions to reduce the scale and adverse impact of dementia. Affecting nearly 50 million individuals globally, dementia takes its highest toll on vulnerable and disadvantaged populations.

Fellows are empowered to make significant progress toward prevention, cure, and treatment for dementia through an inter-professional training program and access to a strong, robust, global network of mentors and colleagues.

Fellows translate research evidence and innovation into more informed and effective policy and practice.


Program

Based at the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), this fellowship program provides innovative training in brain health, leadership, and dementia prevention to a broad array of promising leaders from various professions, including medicine, science, business, law, journalism, and the arts.

  • Up to 40 residential fellowships of 6- to 24-month duration
  • Possibility for non-residential fellowships or training with other organizations worldwide
  • Opportunities for continued community, collaboration and access to resources to support Fellows and their work

GBHI program staff are based at University of California, San Francisco and Trinity College Dublin.


Dementia poses a growing threat to people around the globe. The Atlantic Fellows Program answers the world’s urgent call for well-equipped leaders ready and able to tackle this challenge.
