The Atlantic Fellows programme for Equity in Brain Health at GBHI offers cutting-edge training, networking opportunities, and support to up-and-coming leaders who are committed to enhancing brain health and lessening the effects of dementia both locally and globally.
The Atlantic Fellows programme for Equity in Brain Health is one of seven global Atlantic Fellows programmes aimed at fostering more inclusive, equitable, and healthy societies.
People from a wide range of fields, including the arts, sciences, economics, policy, medical, media, community-based practise, and much more, are welcome to apply to the programme. Whatever the field, they are seeking people with excellent ideas, zeal, and leadership potential who are working in the field of dementia and brain health. Additionally, the ideal fellow is someone who connects across disciplines, dismantles conventional barriers, and is dedicated to addressing problems related to global disparities in brain health and dementia.
- Neuroscience, health economics, social determinants of health, health policy, and other interdisciplinary fields are covered in the learning sessions that fellows participate in linked to brain health, dementia, and health equality.
- Fellows engage in initiatives focused at promoting brain health while gaining insight into the lived experience of people with dementia in clinical and community-based settings through observational, case-based, and experiential learning.
- Fellows will strengthen their public speaking and other kinds of idea distribution as well as acquire skills that will help them be successful in securing funds for their future work.
- Fellows undergo leadership training designed to position them to have a profound impact on brain health globally.
Career Advancement and Pilot Grants
- Fellows will get professional mentoring from professors at GBHI and in their local community during the programme and beyond. Mentors will support fellows in applying for competitive pilot funds of up to $25,000 to start a large-scale initiative in their local community. They will also help fellows realise their goals and be transformative.
- The process of becoming an Atlantic Fellow for Equity in Brain Health at GBHI continues after the programme is over. In fact, the fellows join an active community for the rest of their lives, extending and enhancing the impact of the fellowship. The program’s interdisciplinary and interprofessional structure promotes cross-sector interactions, and each fellow significantly benefits the cohort by imparting their knowledge and skills.
