Palliative care scholarships awarded to San Diego County health professionals
Dec. 15, 2020 (SAN DIEGO, CA) – The California State University Shiley Institute for Palliative Care recently awarded $25,000 in scholarships for palliative care education to 16 health professionals in San Diego County.
The annual Donald and Darlene Marcos Shiley Scholarships cover the full cost of tuition in any Institute course and are designed to expand and elevate the delivery of palliative care throughout the San Diego region. This year’s recipients were selected in honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month in November.
“Each year we award these scholarships, funded through the generosity of Darlene Marcos Shiley, I get to feel like Santa Claus,” said the Institute’s Executive Director Jennifer Moore Ballentine. “Especially this year, with all its tragedies and challenges, to grant the wishes of so many applicants inspired to learn more about palliative care is a humbling honor and joy.”
