Health Equity Scholars Program (HESP)

The Health Equity Scholars Program (HESP) provides future investigators in the field of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRDs) with the knowledge, skills and resources to become culturally competent and proficient researchers. HESP provides a tailored mentored training approach to advance career success and satisfaction among its trainees.

The HESP is an umbrella term for the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) and Health and Aging Brain Study-Health Disparities (HABS-HD) mentoring programs.

Application Deadline: March 8th, 2024

Eligibility Requirements

This program is geared towards emerging scientists from underrepresented populations (e.g., Black/African American, Latina/o/x/e, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander) and those with a commitment to brain health equity research in ADRDs. Our ultimate goal is to address the current lack of ethnoculturally/linguistically diverse and culturally competent ADRD professionals in the workforce. Applicants from various career stages including graduate/medical students, postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty are eligible for the program.
