Scholarships to Boost Palliative Care in San Diego Region
The recipients of the 2017 Donald and Darlene Marcos Shiley Scholarships come from diverse backgrounds, organizations and healthcare roles, but share a common vision and purpose: they want to deepen their palliative care skills to better serve patients in San Diego County.
That’s the mission behind the scholarships, offered through the California State University Institute for Palliative Care and funded by a $25,000 donation from Darlene Marcos Shiley.
More than 40 nurses, social workers, chaplains and other health professionals applied for the awards, which cover the full cost of tuition in any Institute course. The 16 recipients were announced in late November in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month.
