"Brain Health: A Global Perspective, Subcommittee: Africa, Global Health, & Global Human Rights"

A group of respected individuals within the field of psychology, psychiatry, and neurology, came together for a Government Hearing to push for the Global Brain Health Act. This was a bill created to advocate for people with neurodevelopment/brain disorders who have a harder time reaching the resources needed to treat them. The bill created a grant that can be given to organizations that research developmental disorders or organizations that raise awareness for Alzheimers, Autism, hydrocephalus and other brain disorders. They can apply for the grant and use the resources to further their respective cause.


Doctors that are respected within their fields were invited as witnesses to this hearing to support this bill. Dr. Daniel Geschwind, a respected UCLA doctor/researcher and the cofounder of CART, was one of the three witnesses invited to speak at this hearing to promote the Brain Health Act.


The speakers in this hearing mention how there is very little advocacy for people with brain disorders and how accessing treatment earlier can help people have better outcomes. The problem is that people are usually diagnosed with disorders such as autism at later dates, and this is especially true for people of color, specifically Black and LatinX communities.
