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 people globally, dementia takes its highest toll on vulnerable and disadvantaged populations.
Fellows are empowered to make significant progress toward reducing the scale and impact of dementia through an inter-professional training program and access to a strong and robust global network of mentors and colleagues.
Fellows will translate research evidence and innovation into policies and practices that reflect the needs of specific regions and their populations.
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 fellows annually
12-month residential fellowship
Possibility for non-residential fellowships or training with other organizations worldwide
Continued community, collaboration and access to resources to support Fellows and their work
GBHI fellows and program staff are based at University of California, San Francisco and Trinity College Dublin.
