Your Brain’s Health – Innovative Digital Platform

Northern Europe

Overview

The creation of an innovative multi-digital, multilingual science-based platform to raise global brain health awareness and change attitudes and policies. The idea for this pilot emanates from Fionnuala Sweeney’s background in journalism for more than two decades as an anchor/correspondent with CNN and, more recently, her time in Washington as VP & Executive Editor of The Cipher Brief, a multi-digital platform on national and global security issues. It is also borne of her personal experience with her father who had been diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease, and her bearing witness to the deterioration of his mind and quality of life.
