Palliative Care Interest Group

Membership Eligibility: All Members of the Jefferson Community

Membership Dues or Fees: None

Description:
By organizing a lecture series, a volunteer program, and panel discussions, we aim to increase awareness about the benefits that palliative care and hospice care offer for patients, their families, and physicians. We coordinate opportunities for students to volunteer in the hospital. For example, we have them interact with patients on the TJUH inpatient palliative care service to offer friendship and support during difficult times.
