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.
