[ Music ]>>President Karen Haynes: As
President of Cal State San Marcos, I am delighted that CSUSM was chosen as the
home of the CSU Institute for Palliative Care. We are a young and vibrant university known
for our innovative approach to education, our community engagement and
our entrepreneurial spirit. These characteristics will serve
us well as we start on the path to providing the skilled nurses, social workers
and allied healthcare professionals required to care for those with serious or
chronic illnesses and their loved ones. Without a doubt, the CSU Institute for
Palliative Care will have a profound and positive impact on CSUSM, on
the CSU and on our communities. We will educate the healthcare
workers of tomorrow, while providing current healthcare professionals with countless opportunities
to enhance their skills. Through meaningful research, faculty
will help establish best practices for the future of healthcare. And through programs and projects, we
will educate and inform our communities about the significant role
palliative care can play in their lives and in the future of our nation. I am proud to know that with this institute,
the CSU will redefine patient care, we will create an unparalleled model
for interdisciplinary collaboration and community involvement that benefits current and future healthcare professionals,
as well as our entire state. We will be the education resource for anyone
and everyone interested in palliative care.
