Stanford Undergraduate Hospice and Palliative Care (SUHPaC )

Multi-quarter part-time

SUHPaC provides opportunities for students to become certified hospice volunteers and volunteer individually with hospice patients. We also aim to increase awareness of end-of-life issues on campus through social events throughout the year.

Our goal is to bring awareness and hands-on exposure towards end-of-life care to undergraduate students across campus. We will equip students with meaningful patient interactions and experiences that encourage and inspire compassionate care of older adults as well as seriously ill persons and their families.

Service required by group to fulfill a Cardinal Commitment: Students should commitment to volunteering for a year with a hospice organization through SUHPaC, with the expectation that they work directly with hospice patients.
