The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) and the Office of the Vice Dean for Population Health and Health Equity at UCSF support annual equity awards to catalyze innovative research and the implementation of projects related to brain health and underserved communities. Award winning research projects have focused on homelessness, dementia assessment in diverse populations, the impact of socioeconomic status on brain health, and the engagement of underrepresented populations in clinical practice and research. To date, the Memory and Aging Center, through GBHI and this award mechanism, has committed $100,000 to early-career faculty working in this vital area of our shared mission.

Recent award winners at UCSF will talk about their research projects during the Population Health and Brain Health Equity Scholars Lecture:


  • Charles Windon, Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology and Salvatore Spina,  Associate Professor of Neurology: Increasing Diversity in Autopsies for Neurodegenerative Research (2022 award)
  • Elena Tsoy, Postdoctoral Fellow in Clinical Neuropsychology: Psychometric and Ecological Validity of Neuropsychological Assessment in Diverse Older Adults (2023 award)
  • Victor Valcour, Site Director, GBHI, University of California, San Francisco will speak and moderate the session
