Great Bend Pilot Club held a proclamation signing with Great Bend Mayor Cody Schmidt for Brain Awareness week help March 13-19, uniting efforts of partner organizations worldwide like Pilot International and the Pilot Club of Great Bend to bring awareness to people of all ages by raising consciousness on issues about brain-related diseases and illness (Autism & Alzheimer’s) as well as injury prevention and brain safety to help prevent traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Year-round the Pilot Club of Great Bend supports the overall service focus of Pilot International; brain safety, brain research, and assistance to those with brain-related disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, chemical dependency, traumatic brain injuries, cancer, autism, and other developmental, emotional and mental disabilities.

Public outreach and education serve as a cornerstone to promote understanding of the brain and nervous system.  Increasingly, Brain Awareness efforts are taking place year-round and compelling stories about the impact of neuroscience research are being shared with educators and the public.
