Michigan Center for Urban African American Aging Research
Black Men’s Brain Health Fellowship Program
The Black Men’s Brain Health (BMBH) Conference hosted during Super Bowl week aims to convene scientists and community leaders to increase the representation of Black men in brain science research and to reduce brain health disparities among Black men. A key aim of this first-ever conference series is to cultivate a culturally competent workforce committed to addressing Black men’s brain health, cognitive aging, and Alzheimer’s Disease/Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia (AD/ADRD) research. The research fellowship program is a signature component of this Conference.
Apply to join the inaugural cohort of the BMBH Fellowship Program, supporting early and mid-career investigators examining brain aging among Black men. Fellowship awardees will receive opportunities to expand their research trajectories, connect with leading national scholars, and engage with local community organizations.
