At the UAB Center for Palliative and Supportive Care, our vision is to continue to transform care for patients and families with serious illness. 

Through compassionate clinical care, innovative training programs and robust research focused on developing the best systems of care for patients and caregivers, our goal is to lead the nation in caring for those with serious illness.

There are a number of ways to support the work of the Center.  Philanthropic investment, volunteering and community advocacy are all ways to help support palliative and supportive care in our community.
