At a European level, there are moves to better coordinate brain research, healthcare planning, and implementation of brain research evidence into practice. All of these initiatives point to the growing importance of taking a brain health informed approach across the life course. 

This webinar, hosted by the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), aims to begin to build the connections, consensus and actions that will move the important field of brain health training and education forward. The session will feature examples of brain health training across different dimensions and disciplines from across the globe, and a panel discussion involving European and international experts.
