The program values and supports innovative, interprofessional research and promotes activities to enhance international collaborations. The Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health program at GBHI provides innovative training in brain health, leadership and dementia prevention to a broad array of promising leaders. The program is designed to train individuals from any profession - including but not limited to medicine, science, public policy, journalism, business, law and the arts - provided they possess the skill, compassion and drive to be a force of change for brain health. 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 join the program for 12 months. Have a base at the UC 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.
Cognitive disorders in adults including Alzheimer Certification Courses's disease and other dementias, geriatric neurology and general neurology. I'm very grateful for this course! It was excellent. It may have taken me longer to complete it (about a year) but that is actually a strength. As an older person who learns more slowly now, it was extremely helpful to be able to pace myself. I'm appreciative of the excellent instruction and support for the course. I really enjoyed this course. In fact, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed taking an online course! The instructors were knowledgeable, caring and engaging, and the subject matter was relevant. It was very well organized. Easy to progress from one module to the next. Thank you for creating such a thoughtful and important course. I am very pleased with this course. Many dementia classes are very basic. I wanted something more in-depth. This definitely met. Went beyond my expectations!
