GBHI trains advocates for healthy aging
The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) trains international health providers as leaders, advocates, and key stakeholders in the shared fight against dementia. This program will prepare individuals to put research knowledge into practice. All participants develop skills needed in leadership, communications, health economics, and policy, built on a foundation of brain health science and evidence.
The driving goal of GBHI is to develop and mentor outstanding individuals to become leaders who will have a long-lasting impact on dementia prevention in their communities across the world. GBHI seeks individuals who want to bridge the gap between neuroscience and public health with respect to dementia prevention.
The program is designed to train leaders from any discipline, provided the individual possesses the skill, compassion, and drive to be a force of change in brain health. Trainees can work at UCSF, Trinity, or both. As GBHI matures, trainees may learn at academic sites around the world. At least one-half of scholars and fellows will come from outside the US and Ireland, with initial emphasis on Latin America and the Mediterranean. Applicants from around the world who exhibit outstanding potential for this training will be considered.
