The HBI Collaborative is composed of partners funded through cooperative agreements with the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the National Healthy Brain Initiative (NHBI) and the Building Our Largest Dementia Infrastructure for Alzheimer's Act (BOLD Act). Co-chaired by the CDC's Alzheimer's Disease Program and the Alzheimer's Association, the HBI Collaborative works collectively to promote brain health, address cognitive impairment and better support the needs of caregivers. These are the participating members.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Alzheimer's Disease Program
The Alzheimer's Disease Program (ADP) at CDC develops evidence-based, scientific information to educate, inform and assist in translating its research into public health practice. ADP co-chairs the HBI Collaborative, oversees and administers the NHBI and BOLD Act federal grants and provides public health leadership on national caregiving and cognitive health partnerships.
NHBI Awardee, Component A — Alzheimer's Association
The Alzheimer's Association serves as the backbone support organization for the HBI Collaborative. As the only NHBI Component A awardee, the Alzheimer's Association co-chairs the HBI Collaborative by providing strategic guidance, administrative support, and coordination. A national partner of the NHBI since its inception in 2005, the Alzheimer's Association helps state, local, and tribal public health organizations address the growing Alzheimer's crisis through the joint development and implementation of the HBI Road Map series, enhanced data collection and analysis and training for the current and future public health workforce.
