Philanthropic support of the CSU Institute for Palliative Care by people and organizations who share its vision has been critical to its formation. Such support will continue to be essential to its growth and expansion across the state.
“I am so pleased to support a program that will ultimately benefit others the way I have been personally helped. My late husband’s experience with hospice and palliative care made me realize how specialized and important the field of palliative care is today and the growing need for such care in the future. Cal State San Marcos is taking on a project that is smart, compassionate and greatly needed.” See Darlene Shiley’s video introduction to Palliative Care.
