Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) works to reduce the scale and impact of dementia around the world by training and supporting a new generation of leaders to translate research evidence into effective policy and practice.

The Atlantic Fellows program at GBHI 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, social science, and the arts. Through their work, Fellows are expected to emphasize local and global health inequities that need to be addressed by practitioners and policymakers, with the goal of transforming local communities around the world.

Atlantic Fellows will join the program for 12 months* and have a base at the University of California, San Francisco or Trinity College Dublin. A core curriculum of weekly courses in economics, epidemiology, law and ethics, leadership, neuroscience, public policy, and statistics constitutes part of the experience. Fellows also engage in projects aimed at advancing brain health and have opportunities to work with individuals with cognitive disorders. Through intensive mentoring, Fellows are guided in the development of their projects, careers, leadership, policy change, and impact on brain health.

After their training, Fellows return to their home communities to implement their projects and newly acquired knowledge. They continue to have access to career-duration mentoring, pilot funds, and an international network of colleagues collaborating to drive a common mission.
