United in vision

The members of the savemybrain foundation make it possible to pursue the idea of the foundation and implement our goals through their extraordinary commitment. Our team is composed of different personalities from different occupations. This results in different approaches, backgrounds or points of contact with the subject matter. Bundled together and mutually enriching, these experiences enable us to have a well-founded and proficiency in dealing with our work. Despite the different motivations and backgrounds of our members, in the end they all have the same thing in common.
United in vision.

Through the commitment of all our members, we are able to pursue our vision of closing the existing gaps in the healthcare network especially regarding the treatment after a head injury and promoting the exchange of theoretical and practical knowledge.

This motivates our brains

What does the collaboration with the foundation mean to you?

"The savemybrain foundation is heartily committed to topics related to neurological injuries. As a craniocerebral trauma patient, I know that there are many gaps in my knowledge about these topics. That's where I want to get involved with education, prophylaxis, motivation - gladly promoting the wearing of helmets on bikes, scooters and mopeds - joy-oriented but with a clear message."

(Hans-Peter Durst, ambassador of the foundation savemybrain)
