The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) is delighted to share this annual report for 2022–23.
In August 2023, we welcomed our eighth cohort, 28 new Atlantic Fellows, to GBHI. The program now totals 232 fellows—current and Global Atlantic Fellows (alumni)—from 53 countries across the globe. As more brain health leaders join the program from across the world and across disciplines, it is becoming established as a global movement with a profound impact on brain health equity.
Collaborative work across our fellows network, the wider community of Atlantic Fellows programs, and with our partners and collaborators, is now delivering definitive results and sustainable change. In this report you will learn about many of these accomplishments, including leadership in language-based brain health research, the establishment of a new research network to enhance dementia care, outcomes and access to clinical trials in Ireland and implementing and culturally adapting dementia and cognitive training programs in Ecuador and Zimbabwe.
In 2022–23, we were delighted to once again embrace opportunities to meet and collaborate in person with GBHI hosting regional meetings in Kenya and our Annual Conference in Mexico. Walking the Talk for Dementia, an immersive experience involving people working, researching and living with dementia, took place on the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Plus innovations in brain health and creativity were explored at a dynamic live event—Sleep & Dreams: Music, Neuroscience, & Stories of Slumber—hosted in partnership with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the second annual Creative Brain Week explored the theme of Conflict, Imagination and Joy through expert talks and an expansive creative program on the Trinity campus.
We hope you enjoy reading about all these stories and more. We share deep gratitude to our community members and supporters.
