1000 students for Palliative Care
Here is video of a meeting of Student leaders in Palliative Care aged 18-22. They are organising an event on the 20th of February 2010 where they are expecting up to a 1000 students to attend. I can't even imagine what it would take to bring together a 1000 people in Australia! It will be the first time in the world this many students (people??) have come together to learn about palliative care and how they can contribute in their local communities as volunteers! It is staggering.
I really enjoyed sitting and watching the group - their closeness and respect for each other.
How is it they so successful in mobilising the community to palliative care? Is there anything from this experience that Australia learn from these students and the volunteer programs in Kerala? I have a 1000 questions...
