Since 2016, the Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health program has trained a global community of emerging interprofessional leaders in brain health and dementia prevention through its 12-month residential program at its founding sites at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Trinity College Dublin (Trinity).
