Donald and Darlene Marcos Shiley Scholarships Enhance Palliative Care Access
San Diego, Calif. – January 21, 2016 csupalliativecare.org. The California State University Institute for Palliative Care is pleased to announce, thanks to a generous grant from Donald and Darlene Marcos Shiley Scholarships, that it has awarded scholarships to support palliative care training for 13 southern California health professionals. The recipients are registered nurses, chaplains, and social workers with a wide range of experience. Several have had beginning coursework in palliative care, but all expressed an intense desire to learn more about palliative care, and to bring this care to the patients they serve in San Diego County and southern Riverside and Orange Counties.
