Personal Hero

Francisco Lopera-Restrepo, her boss

Words of Strength

Discipline, passion about neuroscience, empathy


To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, Claudia believes we need to encourage people to learn more about this topic: definition of dementia, first symptoms, and signs, when to visit the doctor, effective ways to diminish the risk.


Claudia is writing a project focusing on anosognosia to impact caregiver's burden and improve quality of life in both patients and carers.


As an Atlantic Fellow, she learned to be a better leader, and improved her skills to communicate information about Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.


Dementia research in Latin America is increasing, and Claudia believes we need an effective way to prevent this disease with the help of everyone: you, her, US!
