HSC receives grant to help the dying

The Project on Death in America (PDIA) recently awarded seven palliative care fellowship program grants across the country, including one for $150,000 to the Hospice/Palliative Training Program at the Health Sciences Center.

Palliative care, offered to patients with progressive and advanced disease and a limited prognosis for survival, relieves suffering and helps the patient and family achieve the best possible quality of life.

The two-year grants will support the training of physicians in the principles of palliative care.
