What Gives Your Life Meaning is the theme that the CSUSM Faculty Learning Community has created to increase awareness about palliative care and the importance of aligning healthcare decisions with our personal values. Through a series of campus events and activities, students, faculty and community members work together to get people thinking and talking about what is meaningful in their lives.
